Dew Drops

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on June 1, 2011

Saturday was sunny but it quickly turned into rain and hail that evening. It hailed off and on for a couple of hours and then rained throughout the night. It was foggy and misty all of Sunday and our plans for a hike and picnic in the hills were foiled. We were both stir crazy so we put on our rain gear and went for a walk around the ranch.

Dandelions took a beating from the hail.

The grass is green from all of the moisture and the meadows were very boggy.

Sparkly droplets were everywhere…

…like the shiny diamonds of dew on this mustard weed.

The ferocious Wyoming winds blew all day Monday and yesterday morning. I was finally able to take a hike in the hills yesterday and it’s mostly dried out and everything is so green. I think summer is finally here. Maybe. I’ll let you know later this week. 🙂

Perched up high, watching over the ranch.

It was so kind of him to stop by and strike a pose.

Happy Monday everyone!

Love on the Ranch

Posted in Love, Photography by leahyetter on February 14, 2011

Don’t worry, this one isn’t too sappy.
I have to admit I’m not big on Hallmark holidays but I thought I’d share some lovey-dovey images with you today. It was brought to my attention that the last several posts might have sounded a little like I was buried in some winter misery. It’s not the cold, it’s the wind that creates misery.

But it’s the love that keeps me here.

The love of long walks to the tractor to feed the cows and horses in the springtime.

The warm and fuzzy feeling I get when fawns share a kiss outside of my office window.

And the kindness one cow shows another with a sweet head butt and a quick lick melts my heart every time.

Have a great day my lovely friends. Thanks for stopping by.


Winter Grayscale

Posted in Photography, Winter by leahyetter on February 8, 2011

The winter blahs are taking hold. Every thing outside is gray and cold.

Snow is packed so tight in the drifts that there are ripples and dents like wet sand at the beach.

And a small collection of black and white images can’t be complete without a visit from Kate with  snow on her snout.

We have fresh snow falling this morning but it doesn’t look as though we’ll have the below zero temps like last week. Hopefully the cowcicle episode will not occur again…this winter at least.

“De Affodil”

We enjoyed a quiet weekend at home on the range. I hope you had a good one.
The cattle have thawed out, the snow is slowly melting, and the grocery store had fresh cut daffodils on Friday.

Patrick bought me ten stems and they are beautifully dressing up the dining room and kitchen.

Forgive me if another photograph of flowers bores you, I just need to spruce up this gray and very windy Monday.

Over the Moon

Posted in Photography, Thankful by leahyetter on January 22, 2011

I am over the moon excited, thrilled, and honored to be featured on Freshly Pressed yesterday.

I’ve been photo blogging for about a year and have enjoyed it thoroughly. Thank you WordPress. Thank you to everyone who is visiting, commenting and subscribing. I am overwhelmed.

I’ve got more to share with you as calving time is approaching. There will be plenty of cuteness, angry cows and big sticks!  Stay tuned…
