"Feral ~ from feminine of ferus wild: having escaped from domestication and become wild"...




Tuesday

Pasque-ing in the Springtime




I saw my first Pasque Flower on Mothers Day...

and this is what we did ~







We did what most people do...

we went for a sunday drive ~



 



Sometimes the traffic was a little much, but still we trundled on...







We explored and saw lots of neat things - like old growth sawn logs...


And lots of Pasque flowers.






And I learned that using your telephoto lens is not a good idea for self portrait shots...


But still it was all good.


Hope you had just as a peaceful & a poetic day as we did!

  5. Awesome way to spend the day! That would be great country for trail riding. I imagine it's all open range or cattle lease land?
    I see the Oregon Grapes are blooming. we used to pick the new tender leaves and chew them, they have a really tart flavor.

  8. First time I see the Pasque flowers. They are lovely. That first picture is something else!!

    It seems you had a good time, although the traffic was so "chaotic"... that was sweet.

    Wish you a great week.

  13. Looks like a peaceful kind of day except for the telephoto shot, that would be frustrating. I think my camera is supposed to capture whatever I want, the way I want it. Too bad they don't make one like that. LOL

    Belated Happy Mother's Day!

  15. I haven't heard that name for what I call Crocuses. They are one of my favourite flowers on the prairie, coming in the spring along with the new calves. What a nice drive.

  16. This is what I like to do any day that I can. We did it yesterday to get a load of wood so can stay warm this winter. And those photos of the flowers are wonderful. Wish I could take them that close. I tried and tried on some shooting star penstimins and never got what I wanted. I will watch your blog for more.

I am feral, so although I dont respond at all like most domesticated bloggers, I will try my best - Thank you for even wanting to leave a comment, as it may draw me out from the woods from whence I came!

Or under a rock, it depends most days...
