A Rainbow Gift from the Ocean (and Our Kids :) ), Monday, January 23, 2023

Cliff and Kimberly left an ocean cruise where they came across

A most unique and rare gift fro the water and sky

A marvelous rainbow

They sent it to me for my birthday!

How very blessed I am!

Thank you, Kids, (with the Myers)  what a great present this was!

From my world to your heart,

Linda

 

Weather—and the Hay is Down, Monday, October 3, 2022

Wet cat

“It’s wet out there Mom!”

“Yes, Mom, WET!!!”

Sigh!

We just needed a couple more days of drying to get the hay in.

Farming.  Always a risk, where the weather is concerned.

That Story, the Old, Old Story, Monday, January 24, 2022

Here is a wee walk-about

Showing to you, that old, old story,

Of the silence, which is really not silent

of the beauty of our each and every day.

That sense of timelessness

Of marvelous and easy grace

Casting a tiny spell of contentment

A sense of wonder

 

Of daily life on our farm.

🙂

From my world to your heart,

Linda

Water—The Voice of the Land, Monday, November 8, 2021

It’s that time of year (again) when all the canals are turned off

Allowing the reservoirs and lakes to start filling again

It’s a lovely but (for me) a tad sad

For that means winter is looming

Still, I gather at the fences and allow the joyful tinkling of the life-giving water

Lifting  the energy of my mind,

my spirit and soul.

A marvelous sensation, akin to the beating of God(s) heart!

If I’m Not Here Tuesday, Monday, October 4, 2021

Today, Monday, Terry goes in for a hernia operation.

It will be good to get this hernia fixed

It’s an in-and-out operation, so I should be back tomorrow.

But, just in case I’m not

You will know why.

I Don’t Care if it is August —Autumn has Arrived, Monday, August 30, 2021

The sky, the air, the light

Has all changed.


Terry says it feels like the middle of September now

I agree with him.

Autumn/Fall is early this year.

Maybe it (Autumn) will linger on longer than normal,

Allowing those of us who are very fond of this time of year,

(See the spider in her web…waiting, waiting…shudder)

To enjoy its perfection.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

 

 

In the Bright Shafts of Sun Shine, Monday, September 14, 2020

Boomer and I headed to the Upper End, yesterday,

Just enjoying the smiling sunshine

Enjoying the  clouds forming over the Uncompaghre Plateau

When I ran into those pesky wasps on the way back (again)

I just had to see

If I could

Get a decent 

Photo  

Or two.

Although, this is blurry (as they all are) the attack in the sky was very dramatic.

That was pretty cool to see!

Third Cutting of Hay—Monday, August 6, 2018

The Third cutting of hay is occurring right now, even as I write!

It’s early this year.  By about three weeks.

But when it’s ready to cut, it’s ready!

The third cutting of rich, thick alfafa…drying in the sun.  Soon to be made into hay!

All the Way from (Near) Rapallo, Liguria, Italy, Monday, June 20, 2016

From Italy

No rainbow yet but something else that might interest you. My daughter spotted what I believe is a little Kevin Helmholtz cloud…

(See that little wavy cloud?  What a neat find)

Wave CloudHere you can see it better!

Charlotte from the blog, THE DAILY CURE sent me this series of cloud photos. (And a tiny little peak into the wonderful world of Italy!)

I always, always, always enjoy getting photos from you.  I promise I will post them and give you credit—that way even more people can see this big, wonderful world we live in!

And I truly believe the earth, sky, and all of nature are a magical things! A treasure we only need to stop and ‘see’.

From my world to your heart,

Linda
