Uprooted Magnolia

A Rather Uneventful Gather

Posted in Cattle Roundup, Photography by leahyetter on June 29, 2011

The last couple of times gathering the bulls has been, dare I say, easy.

I think it is because they know that they will be meeting up with the ladies soon. A bull is a bull. He’s got one job to do and he knows what that job is. This group and the group last week trailed single file all the way to the corral, ready to be loaded and taken to the ladies. No complaining, no fighting, they took the trail all in stride.

My camera and I were bored since there weren’t any fights to capture. Even the horses were bored with them.

So I went into the meadow of sweet clover and put my camera to work. This wild yellow goodness is everywhere.

And these precious little red and orange flowers serve as ground cover around the drive and near the corrals.

When we hike in the hills we have to be careful of cactus. But the blossoms are so pretty, it’s nice to see beauty pop out of something that is so prickly and painful when stepped on.

Flowering milk thistle is everywhere. I love the purple and pink hues of this one.

Of course we have dandelions, like everyone else, but the ones out here are the biggest I’ve ever seen.
