Pretties from the Garden

~Everything has a meaning, but sometimes
I just can't figure out what it is.~
~Kathy Willow 1881~


It was a beautiful mornin' after yesterday and last night's rain. We started irrigating the alfalfa on May 11 and have not even made it over the fields yet...it just keeps raining. We get two days of nice weather and then it cools off again.

The alfalfa is growing though; it's over the tops of my rubber boots! If it would just warm up, we could get some really good growth and be on track...we'll see~

But, I couldn't resist these shots this mornin'...


Flowers Making Faces
I think these pansies have faces...do you? This is a test ;~)


Tiny & Pretty
So tiny and delicate.


The Apple Tree
The apple tree; the wind has blown off many
of the petals, but it still looks and smells fabulous!

Enjoy your day~

I see the faces too. I just love it over there, I hope to travel over the mountains this year, maybe for the Round-Up. It's amazing how diffrent the climate is from one side of the Mountains to the other. I love the Pacific Nortwest!

I have dandelions.
