Oh Mabel!

I introduced Mabel a few posts ago! Oh my, she has stolen our hearts and we are loving her more each day. She has learned her name and comes to us sometimes, but only when she wants to socialize. She really is a special animal... Love this shot of Mabel on the hill. Oh Mabel, we are so very glad you ended up here with us! … [Read More...]

Before The Storm

Love this photo of the cattle on top of the hill with approaching storms in the background. Sometimes the views take my breath away and I cannot imagine not being able to enjoy the vast beauty. I want every single "picture" to leave a vivid footprint in my brain. … [Read More...]

Spring Came Early

Wildflowers came early this year due to a very mild spring. No complaining here as wildflowers are my favorite time of the year. Wildflowers bring joy, color and just simple beauty for Cowboy and I to enjoy. Last week we had just a few popping up here and there, but with two showers this week they are more abundant and beautiful each day. Here is a little "taste" of our pretty flowers at the … [Read More...]

Cows Aren’t Just Cows

Through the years cows come and go at our place and I try to not get emotionally attached knowing that someday they will be gone. This especially holds true with the babies. I try to live by the theory to "just enjoy them while they are here with us"... Of course many of the mama cows live a long life here and I usually end up loving all of them. Occasionally there will be a special cow that I … [Read More...]

Heart Rocks

I found this heart farm rock while hiking a few days before Valentines Day! I have discovered several and am hoping to spend one entire day soon devoted to "The Heart Hunt"... I love anything hearts; especially those found in nature such as clouds, rocks, leaves, cactus. If you find something "Heart" spectacular send me a pic! … [Read More...]

Montana Painting

One of my college friends is an artist who paints from the heart. She took a simple photo of mine and presto... it became a beautiful painting. You can find Sandy's paintings at Sandy Donn on Etsy and she writes a beautiful blog filled with her paintings and her feelings about them. Sandy's Blog I took this photo in Glacier National Park and this is her painting. Enjoy! … [Read More...]

Colorado Valley

Visited friends in Colorado last week and had a grand time. This girls trip was planned around being outdoors and all I can say is wow! The weather was perfect- not too hot and not to cold. Lots of walks and hikes taking in all nature could provide. It could not have been more glorious. Today I am sharing three photos in the valley area of Westcliffe Colorado. Very rural and the beauty is … [Read More...]

New Orleans Cemetery

My grandmother had a love of everything New Orleans. She and my grandfather's best friend lived in NOLA and they visited him many times throughout the years. I think my grandmother loved antique shopping there more than anything and my favorite little table came from there. I also love New Orleans. I love the architecture; especially the old French structures. I love the high energy. I love the … [Read More...]

On A Clear Day

On a clear day you can see forever! I love driving around and finding the perfect landscape at the farm. Each day provides a different setting so I never get bored! Love this cow! These clouds were perfect. Wish I had packed a blanket so I could lay on ground and spend time watching the clouds like I did as a kid! … [Read More...]

Fall Calving

It's fall calving season and most of the expectant moms have been moved to the "baby pasture." It is a fun time of year and we really enjoy the babies jumping, running and doing cute things! This mom is waiting to go to the "baby pasture". Looks like it won't be long. Here is another expectant mom. She is not quite ready to be moved yet. This precious little boy lost his mom right … [Read More...]

Hidden Treasure

Last month I attended a Memorial Service for a friend's mom in Alpine, Texas. While there we visited Marfa and Fort Davis also. Wow, this was the most gorgeous area with the most unbelievable mountain area. We were not able to view the Marfa lights because of a few evening storms, but we did manage a little shopping! We did head over to Fort Davis for the most beautiful mountain formations I have … [Read More...]
