We have a huge crop of Indian Blankets at the farm this year and ya”ll know they are my favorites. Yesterday I spent hours taking photos and simply soaking up the beauty. I was walking in a pasture and found this little beauty growing around some rocks. She was just a little different than most […]
Well, April is nearly over and my rush to take hundreds of wildflower photos simply never happened this year. In fact, I never made it to the country roads to even look around to see where they were blooming the best. We have had so much rain this April which is good, but it seems […]
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 […]
Indian Blankets bloomed early this year! These are my favorites – above any other flower!
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 […]
Our Indian Blankets (Gaillardia) are drying up this week much to my dismay. These wildflowers are at the top of my “love” list and every May and June I enjoy their color at the farm. The colors are brilliant. I love the vivid red, orange and yellow combination. They pop up every spring and are found […]
I love spring at the farm. We are always super busy with all our spring projects. Cleaning barns, shredding pastures, planting, watering and vaccinations for all the cows, donkey’s and goats. Love all the little calves being born. The anticipation of wildflower season nearly drives me crazy! Cleaning the grill to cook-out. Waiting for that special […]
Love spring gardens! Attended an event last week and they had a lovely garden. Loving the rocks used as backdrop to garden. Happy pot of flowers! Indian Blankets in a home garden. Love this. Usually just see them on the side of road as wildflowers!
I spent the last year putting most of my energy into recovering from my barn accident last April. I am finally doing really well. Some days I still have a limp, but I am trying hard to walk without one. I am not totally “there” yet, but I think each month is bringing me to my desired goal. […]
Never have been a winter person. Always dreaming of warm weather in the winter. Winter is not even close to saying good-bye. I am still dreaming of spring flowers with warm sunny days and a shower or two…
Wildflowers are starting to show their amazing colors. We had three inches of rain early last week which was great. I think our flowers will start blooming the next few weeks in abundance. I love the beginning of wildflower season and the new beginning it brings us. I know, for me, spring brings me excitement and […]
If you read my blog then you know how disheartened I was last spring when we virtually had no wildflowers. This spring will be different and it looks like it might even be a GREAT wildflower season. This week our first bluebonnet appeared up on our hill. So exciting! Such a wonderful event for me. Such a sad […]
It is unusually warm today which is making me very ready for spring flowers. No wildflowers last spring which was so disappointing. I am so very hopeful that this spring we will have roadsides and fields full of pretty flowers. I am dreaming of yellows, oranges, reds, pinks, purples and whites. My camera will be […]
