Late winter days

Sunshine and the promise of spring.

Some photos from my afternoon walkabouts. . .  We have almost 2 miles of beautiful walking trail around our property, framed all the way by our "amazing stacked log zigzag fence" :)  Such a wonderful thing. How fortunate we are.

And one of our most welcome harbingers of spring … we normally only see one meadowlark a year…  ~ so we are keeping our eyes out.  Soon we think!

Winter sunset on the plateau

 David has a passion for painted skies and loves to take photographs.
These photos from a late January evening.  Enjoy!

"Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together."

 -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  Evangeline (pt. II, sec. II)
