A Springtime Promise

It’s still chilly here in good ole Wyoming and we have the threat of snow for the next couple of months. *Sigh*
But out from underneath the little patches of snow laying around, sprigs of green grass are popping. Today is the first official day of Spring and while I know it takes a while for it to really take effect, I see these green blades as a promise of a new season. Really, I do. 🙂


Bugs and Rattles

Summer is upon us. The bugs are out.
And so are the buzztails.

I shot and killed my first rattlesnake yesterday at the chicken food bowls. This was a first for me. Patrick usually kills them but I was by myself this time. I am very thankful for my neighbor who came over to chop off his head and pinch the rattle off for me as a souvenir.  Never ever thought I would say this but now that I’ve gone from city girl to country girl, I will forever carry a gun when I go out to do chores. Gotta keep the chickens, ducks, goats, and myself safe out here in the wild west!

But with the ugly comes the beauty that is Wyoming.
I’m so glad the critters and I are are safe and sound and can go back to enjoying the wild flowers and green grass. That is until the next slithering reptile comes and interrupts a perfectly fine morning.

Be safe and well my friends!

Well, the weatherman was right and we are buried in it. It hasn’t let up ALL day.  Snow still coming down and blowing all around. I’m used to snowfall in April, but not a blizzard. We’ve been waiting for this all winter!

I am so excited that the winter ground is transitioning from this…

Winter has been interrupted by the green grass springing up everywhere. This makes me giddy and I’m looking forward to change. Change is good.
