Good Morning and Good Day!

It's another lovely day here at the Baldpate where the soup is kept hot, the salads chilled, and a warm greeting of friendship is always included with your visit. Before I get to our soups and muffins of the day, I would like to leave you with a few facts about hummingbirds, which seem to be in abundance at the Baldpate.

Hummingbirds are the only birds that have the ability to move forwards, backwards, up, down, sideways, or sit in sheer space.

Hummingbirds may visit up to 1000 flowers a day in their continuous search for food.
Hummingbirds' hearts beat an average of 1,260 beats per minute.

And hummingbirds love the Baldpate!

So come out and see are feathered friends in action as you have lunch or dinner on our sun porch or enjoy a glass of wine and some dessert on our deck. Our soups today are going to be our Tomato Rice and our Beef Stew. Muffins of the day are Buttermilk Bran and Oatmeal Blues.

After bugging the cooks for half an hour I was told that tomorrow's soups will be Broccoli Cheese and White Chili! In addition, come on out tomorrow night for the weekly Summer Enchanted Evenings educational series. This weeks topic is going to be "The Hard Way to Estes Park." As always, cookies, punch, tea, and coffee will be served as refreshments.
Have a blessed day!
