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?!
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...]
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...]
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...]
Because of all the rains last month we still have a few lingering wildflowers. This month the Mexican Hat flowers have been in abundance. I really have never noticed them very much, but this summer they have become a favorite new flower for me. It is a form of the Prairie Coneflower (Ratibida Columnifera). Don't you love them??? … [Read More...]

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...]
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...]
Indian Blankets bloomed early this year! These are my favorites - above any other flower! … [Read More...]
She was checking me out before she received her immunizations and worming! Not sure if that look is good, bad or deciding on an opinion! … [Read More...]
We are having all the fun at the farm. We are starting to have lots of sweet little calves running around. This one was born a week ago... So very cute! … [Read More...]
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...]
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...]
Happy Easter! Our first bluebonnets bloomed this week. They are exquisite in their beauty and so welcomed. Spring is really here and we are being rewarded by an abundance of wildflowers. 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! Share in the beauty... … [Read More...]
Today we welcomed the warmest day since last fall. We had a nice sunny warm 86 degree day. The cows enjoyed every minute basking in the sun then moving to the shade of the trees. Such a relaxing scene... Here are a few of the girls getting their beauty rest on this wonderful first taste of summer! So happy to have spring finally make a showing. … [Read More...]
