About Dayphoto

My name is Linda Brown. I live on a farm on the western slope of Colorado, in the high mountain desert. I’ve lived here all my life, hailing back four generations on my father’s side. Today I blog about our farm, the everyday activities that keep the farm going. I also write about my thoughts and dreams and goals. On Friday’s I always write about TLC Cai-Cai. Our sweet kitty who helps keep the farm safe. The lovely thing about blogging it opens the world up for all of us to reach out and meet people from many different cultures and different ways of life. You can find me every day (but Saturday) at https://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/ Your Friend on a Western Colorado Farm, Linda Brown

Wind in the Fur and the Hair and in the Trees —- Thursday, March 23, 2023

The March winds are here

The wind in March has a true purpose

Without the wind the trees would have trouble

For it is with the wind the trees are able to bring the sap up from the roots.

Wind!  We jump for joy!

Soon the trees will have leaves!

A Shinning Simplicity — Tuesday, March 21, 2023

The sun has been seen so rarely all this late fall, winter, and now early spring

That when we do have it we are over-wrought with

Immense joy.

I would like to hang onto the joy of the sun.  Instead, we have the diaphanous sheen of pearly grey.

The Weather People are Saying: ‘SNOW Coming to Us Starting Monday’!, Sunday, March 19, 2023

They say—

That more of this is coming in

O! Please!

Let all of this

Be just a memory—-

Until next year—

in November through February.

Please let genuine Spring Begin!

Storm clouds forming!  Sigh!

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Back on the Land AGAIN!, Friday, March 17, 2023

TLC and I went outside to



Dad was backing up that big



(This was taken two weeks ago)

So, we ran back inside!

Mom told us Dad was going out to see if the rain made it

Too muddy to get back out

On the Land.

Guess what?!


TLC and Boo Berry


A Wee Break in the Storms — Wednesday, March 15, 2023

We are in-between storms.

The sunshine is crisp and delightful

The mud is starting to firm.

But——–another round of storms is heading in here again.


From my heart to your world,


Then the Rains Came — Monday, March 13, 2023

The lawns are showing sprigs of green—the alfalfa is getting two leaf sprouts, and the weeds are thriving!

Although cold, it is starting to feel more and more like Spring.
