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




Friday

gee, i just wish Winter would be over...

sigh.

welcome to weather in Montana.


 the roses are crying,

the grass is hiding,


 the snapdragons lost their snap...

well, exchanged it for an icy snap.


even the hammock is confused.

Snow on october 4th?

So what does it mean?

Merry Christmas, to Each and Everyone!

  3. Howdy FW & MF,
    Only 6 more months until SPRING and green grass... One of my friends was from Montana and told us that they lived in a 'cup/bowl of a valley, which would FILL with SNOW and they had to shovel UPWARD FOR AIR, Tunnel ACROSS to the barn build a stairway out and walk OVER to granma's house to dig her out.... Now, he is a medical doctor and I want to believe him, BUT that's a WHOLE LOT OF SNOW !!!!!
    Pet Tomaz for us, pat the hosses and try to have a HAPPY DAY !!!!

  4. Oh oh oh I am so excited keep it cold and I will be right over with my snowshoes....do you have a giant ice dome to lower over your beautiful snowy world to preserve it for me I am not sure how long it will take I may have to ship myself parcel post COD if that is OK. I can only imagine my getting those beautiful, beautiful photos on my camera that you now have on yours. Merry Christmas everyone yeah that is a bit of a worry I wonder if will it be hot and humid at Christmas. Only time will tell my friend..:). Ebony and Frostig look so pretty but I am sure they are not amused. Hopefully someone is sharing the nice dry shed if you know what I mean:) Good thing you had the handsome chimney sweep on the roof the other day:) xo B

  5. Meh. Weather is so undependable. Odds are there will be some Indian Summer that will drop in about the time we've put on all our woolies, dug out our snow shovel and fired up the furnace.

  6. Oh, I love that shot of the "grass hiding". Its way too early for a winter storm. Sure hope this is just a glitch and you'll be back to autumn soon. Poor roses are lovely with the snow, but its brutal to them.

  29. Beautiful pictures - but a bit early for snow.... it didn't get close to us (we got rain) but oh the others out west sure did get it.

  30. First, thank you for your comment, I love you too, that's for sure. I have missed you, missed knowing what happened with Frostig. Now I know he came home with you. Baby is happy, right? I have to go back and read about them. I don't know how my dried herbs are turning out. Being a Swede, well, a Swedish goddess, I had to dry the dill first and foremost, then I did the rosemary, sweet basil, and some parsley (don't know about the parsley, but the rest smells real good). We had snow at about 1,000 feet above us, but only a small amount. I love, love, love what you got and the pictures of the horses in the snow are wonderful.

  31. I know you are a busy woman, but when you stay up at midnight and no longer need to look for a horse, perhaps you could begin on a book. A book about life in the West, a book about wild fires, wild mustangs, wild flowers, and survival. A book about how the grass came back and the flowers too. You have so much talent, it would kind of be a shame if it didn't get out there in the world. I know this is a very difficult thing to do, so if there is no time for it, I am so glad to have this blog where I can come and read better writing than in many, many of the books published today.

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...
