Apparently Mother Nature is calling for more rain and thunderstorms this weekend. We are just about waterlogged but it’s okay. Better than the alternative I say.

Here’s to stormy skies, rainbows and Wyoming breezes. Cheers!

After a Summer’s Rain

the last Sunset In July

I love the sights and smells after a summer rain. We’ve been lucky enough to have quite a few showers here lately. Something we are not used to.  🙂

Who needs to see the northern lights when you can have a Wyoming sunset.

After every thunder and lightning storm (with very little rain mind you) we drive to the ranch entryway and glass the hills looking for smoke. We can’t even enjoy a  light rainfall without being nervous about a fire.

But it’s always a great opportunity to capture a colorful sky.

A pink rainbow appeared twice last week, this one came last Thursday .

I was going to post this last Friday with the title “Who needs Aurora when you’ve got Wyoming?” (or something to that effect, titles are always the hardest). But when I woke up to the news of the senseless events in Aurora Colorado, I along with everyone else in the nation, sat stunned and disgusted. My title was then obviously inappropriate. In fact I couldn’t bring myself to write anything. To take the words from my friend Seasweetie, “there really are no words.”

A week later still, I’m speechless.

For the victims, deceased and living, their families and their heroes, I send you all pink rainbows and pray you will find peace and resolution in the days and years to come.

With Sincerest Love,

Home: Where Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops

We had a nice time at The Vinyud and I always enjoy getting home and back into a regular routine after a vacation. Oh who am I kidding, there’s no regular routine around here. But smelling the manure and sage again is comforting and puts a smile on my slightly sun soaked face.

Even the clouds and hills welcomed us home with a smile.

Summertime is covered in dragonflies out here in the country. My little blue friend greeted me on the porch while I sipped my coffee the morning after we arrived home. He was happy to see the camera again.

We were also welcomed with another double rainbow . We took an evening drive for groceries and the town was lit up with this colorful streak of light in the sky.

There really is no place like home.
