The plum bushes are in full bloom around the area.  I wish there was a way to show you the smell they give off.  It is really great.  Taken 4/30/2007.

Now that the weather has warmed up the horses are really shedding their winter hair.  This was just from one side of the horse I was riding.  I'm sure they are glad to be combed out.  Taken 4/14/2007.

Nylon and the heifer were both looking at me very expectantly.  What they were expecting I don't know but the expression was there.  I always find the evening light interesting like in this photo.  The different tones give it a softer feel.  Taken 3/14/2007.

This photo is from a while ago but is indicative of what is happening now again.  The water is running high as the rest of the snow melts in the 50+ temperatures we are getting.  You can see where the water was running and by the ice hung up in the tree how high it was earlier.  This photo was taken by My Darling Wife.  Taken 2/21/2007.

We had a little bit of an ice fog going on here the other day.  This may look like a black and white image, but it's not.  It just shows all the color there was on this day.  Taken 3/1/2007.

This is what the road across one of my big open flats looked like during the recent snowstorm.  Real easy to see. isn't it.  I went slow and stayed near it until I was across the flat and could pick the road out better.  Taken 2/12/2007.

Was this miserable.  Wind blowing strong, snow falling, cold temperatures.  Almost like a blizzard but not enough snow was coming down for that.  This morning it has cleared off and is -20F out the wind is still blowing.  The wind chills are going to be fierce out there.  Taken 2/1/2007.

One day when I was counting cattle through a gate, my daughter asked me how I could keep track of the count.  I told her, "Some people, like Grandpa, count the number of ears that go by then divide by 2 to get the number of cattle through the gate.  I can't do that, I always end up with an odd number.  I find it easier to count the number of feet that go by and divide by 4.  That makes more sense to me."  She didn't think much of my explanation, I don't know why.  Taken 1/23/2006.

They have been burning slash just east of my place for a couple of days now.  They did quite a bit of logging after our nasty fire a few years ago and the slash piles must be ready to burn.  It sure took me by surprise when I came over the hill and saw it.  Taken 1/18/2006.

Looking down the top of one of the loads of hay we feed on a daily basis.  This is year old hay that is still in little squares.  Most of the newer stuff is in the big bales but we haven't got into that yet.  Taken 12/19/2006.

Snow drift from our latest little snow storm.  There wasn't enough snow to cause to much trouble but the tumbleweeds around here really caused it to drift in the fences.  Damn tumbleweeds.  Taken 1/12/2007.
