Happy As A Lark

I fixed my blog site! It was all cattywompus but I put it back together again. All by myself.
The sun has been shining, hardly a swirling cloud getting in the way. Oh, that sun. My friend!
Warmer weather has dried the red dirt road I take out toward Cherry Mountain. I cannot tell you how many Meadowlarks I've seen. They're singing their hearts out on every fence post along the way! Hawks and crows show me where to go, up to the tree line. Everything is turning to countless shades of green as flowers show off the palette of colors they've chosen this year.
It's summer on the prairie, folks. And I've got a million reasons to be happy.
It's the simple things. Things that are free. Listen to the birds and the songs they sing.
They know.

      Now we've got matching Frankie statues and table runners!
      The little bowl he's holding, I stash all my owl pellets in there. Perfect! xo

    1. Oh wow, I wonder where the lilac scent originated from!? That must have been a pleasant surprise, lilacs mixed in with horsey smells. Nothing better than that!!
      Funny to hear you talk about that crazy wind speed. So, it happens to you too, huh? That is a powerful wind speed, it's ridiculous really.
      I hope you enjoy the heat wave coming on! Haha.

  4. You do look and sound happy! Spring can do that to a person. ;) We had 75 degrees here yesterday and leaves popped out on some aspen and serviceberry. Went hiking in a state park where I knew I'd find early wildflowers: shooting star, yellow bells, prairie stars, which made me happy! Got your note and block print card - love it!

    1. I saw that you went hiking! Do you live not far from Kalispell?? It's so pretty up there. I was happy to hear you saw leaves on the aspens. Cannot wait to see "mine" at Red Feather. ;) aspens are my favorite tree. x

    1. I know what you mean. It was actually kind of fun and challenging to use my brain on figuring out a scenario to putting it back together. And now, if anything ever happens again, I won't panic. Cuz I'm a pro, now! Hehe.
      Appreciate you stopping by, Deb!
