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

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.

The Light Is Changing — Wednesday, March 8, 2023

Spring really is coming—-really really it is

Instead of pink just before the sun sets

The sky turns purple.

Tranquil, purple whispers of Spring.

Sunday and Monday a Big Wind Blew — Tuesday, March 7, 2023

Melting most of the big snow drifts!


But the weather people are saying another Snow Storm is due in here Thursday!

Melt and warmer temps and even a drying wind is a good sign of Spring.

The Backbone of the Woodstove —Monday, March 6, 2023

Is getting the logs split and into the stove!

We do it together– he lifts and splits. I take the splits and stack!

Then haul it into the house. (I like to use the rounds and the splits as a mix in the firebox)

Wood…it’s been a fall/winter/ early Spring continuing job.
