My Special Montana Cabin

This is my very own special Montana cabin. Have been photographing it for over a decade. It is a lovely little cabin, but the elements are beginning to take their toll. I yearn to put a new little roof on it so it can live on ~  in all it’s splendor. It may be tiny, but it stands mighty and proud. I wish I knew it’s history, but I am content on documenting it from year to year. My heart and soul loves this little structure and all of it’s personality. I wish I could bring it home to the farm and care for it, but it is probably happier staying right where it has provided comfort for those viewing it for decades and decades…

We’ve Got Bones!

Bones

You have flower pots full of pretty flowers. Me, I have flower pots full of bones. Bones of animals past. The kids all love searching for bones. They think it is the greatest activity ever. They spend hours searching for the next "good" bone. So now you know. You have flowers and I have bones. It gives a new meaning to garden décor. I bet this made your day?! … [Read More...]

July Baby

July Baby

Had this little cutie last week. This little bull is about 30-40 minutes old in this photo. He was still trying to get his legs "going" while I was photographing him. He was wobbly and stumbling while falling down and getting back up over and over. Mom was extremely mellow and began grazing before he even got completely cleaned up allowing him to explore his new surroundings. Pure sweetness! … [Read More...]

Sweet Mama Love

Mama Love

I can never get enough of watching new moms and their babies. Sometimes I watch them for hours. It fills ones heart with so many feelings of renewal, joy and love. When I spend my time just watching the calves get dinner my heart seems like it will burst with every good feeling. I feel I am so lucky to be one on one with nature here at the farm. My heart is overflowing... … [Read More...]

Little Gray Cloud

Gray Baby

This little calf is really not named "Little Gray Cloud"; however I named him that because his soft gray color compares to a light gray cloud before a thunderstorm or summer rain. I love his pretty light gray color and we don't have many gray calves. My fav for sure and he is adorable and spunky to boot! … [Read More...]

Mexican Hat Wildflowers

Mexican Hat 2015

Because of all the rains last month we still have a few lingering wildflowers. This month the Mexican Hat flowers have been in abundance.

Don't you love them??? … [Read More...]

Lake Deer

Deer

My daughter in law traveled last week to attend a "girl's weekend" lake party.  She always shoots the best wildlife photos with her phone and I just don't understand it. Our farm deer run fast when they see me coming and we do not even hunt them. Wouldn't you just think they would know they are safe and let me take a nice photo of them? But alas, most of my deer pictures have a blur because they … [Read More...]

A Dose of City Fox Cute

One Head

We have foxes at farm, although I rarely see them. One of our "city friends" took these photos in his back yard right in the middle of the city. They are simply too cute for words! Thanks to the "S" family for sharing them with us. You have more darling critters in your back yard than I find out in the country! These cuties take the cake for winning the award for just being too precious for … [Read More...]

Cowboy’s Bluebonnets

BBdownroad

We continue to be busy, but Cowboy snapped these bluebonnets with his phone a few days ago. Love it when he does that for me. Thanks Cowboy! I am hoping to get some good shots in this week, however rain is forecast for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday so we shall see. Make no mistake- we are happy to have the rain! I bet I can catch a few dry hours and go explore for wildflowers. Keep your … [Read More...]

Cows in Pasture

White

We have been so incredibly busy at the farm this spring. Lots of work in the pastures getting ready for spring grasses. Work on and in barns. Work in the yard. Getting all the winterizing taken down and put up. I love this time of year, but it is very busy time. Our drought of six years has improved and we have actually had some nice rain showers. Everything at the farm is green at this point and … [Read More...]

They are going to be beautiful this spring since it is our first year in over five years to actually have moisture. It makes me joyful for my first bluebonnets every single year!
