Yay for it being officially spring! We made it through another winter. Although I know it can still snow here at any given time. Like last year we had 4 inches of heavy wet snow on Memorial Day weekend.
These pictures are from my run on Monday. You can't really see it, but the green grass is starting to poke up through the dirt.
Cola and I decided to take the road less traveled and ran around the edge of a field for awhile. Our fields here are not square, they follow the contours of the hills. I remember a custom combiner when I was younger commenting on how strange our fields were shaped. Obviously it was his first time out of Kansas.
Cutting through some hills to another finger of the field.
To create watering holes for livestock they used to build little dams in coulees to create water resevoirs. We have quite a few of these on the ranch.
Now they just develop the springs and put in stock tanks, which when you are a kid, it makes a pretty good place to play. They both do really. We went swimming in the resevoirs quite a bit while I was growing up. Some had little frogs we would try to catch, although there was never a good place to put them when we were on our horses.
What is your favorite thing about spring? Mine is simply everything turning GREEN!
What a beautiful place! After all the pictures you have shared of the farm I can't help but think of you every time I come home to our farm. My love of the land and farming is something I hope to never forget. That's neat that you guys have old cars left there from so long ago. Obviously Cola loves them!ReplyDelete
I love that car... how neat!! And my favorite thing about spring is the weather... where is spring?! lol. I'll be excited when the weather lightens up.ReplyDelete
Your pictures make me really want to come visit and go for a run with you. So beautiful!ReplyDelete
It never ceases to amaze me how pretty it is up your way - spring or winter.ReplyDelete
The picture of the old car and Cola is great!
What I like about spring? The colors. :)
Spring is NOT turning up here yet...ReplyDelete
Man I miss Montana! Beautiful run!ReplyDelete
Great pictures!!! Looks like an amazing place to run! Winter is still holding on tight here but I love those first warm days in Spring...it's like suddenly you can breathe again...like you can relax your body even though you didn't realize you had been tense so long!ReplyDelete
I feel like I am planning a vacation every time I look at your blog pics. Beautiful! Cola is too funny but he has to do his thing! We have been having some pretty cool weather here this week but I am not sure if it has anything to do with spring.ReplyDelete
So beautiful! Glad the grass is popping up:)ReplyDelete
Oh now I can't wait to here the story about those shoes.ReplyDelete
Glad you have good weather. It's really chilly in KC with 3" of snow tomorrow. So that's really enjoyable. I've really been wanting to try the ZeroDrops.ReplyDelete
I can't believe that is all your property... or maybe the first few pics weren't? How many acres is your farm... looks gorgeous and sereneReplyDelete
Such BEAUTIFUL photos!! Looks SO peaceful!! And I love how Cola goes for your runs with you.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to hear about your new shoes :)
MT is so beautiful. I love Big Sky country. We have some flowers coming up in our backyard now. It is pretty cold this week, but it was hovering in the 50s and 60s last week. Tomorrow and Friday we have a chance of snow, but I doubt it will amount to anything. Can't wait to hear the shoe story.ReplyDelete
PS- thanks to you, I am addicted to the chocolate truffle coffee from Target. That coffee is amazing!
I love all the colors in spring too! It's just so bland in winter with no leaves and no color. We are expecting 3 to 5 inches of snow in the next couple of days to ring in Spring...whoppee can't wait.ReplyDelete
What amazing pictures, and gorgeous landscape!ReplyDelete
What great pictures! I would really love some Spring-Like weather right about now. I love getting my garden started, the slightly warmer, but not yet too hot temperatures. :)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful run! I have never been to Montana but looks wonderfulReplyDelete
I love your pics and I love that spring is headed your way!!!!ReplyDelete
so pretty and that old car is awesome! I love it!ReplyDelete
please send me some spring, this 8 inches of snow we got today is pretty but Spring is that much prettier!
