Our neighbor has Black Angus cattle. They used to have a larger herd but as so many cattlemen in our area, have either sold off or reduced numbers. We enjoy looking at them when they're down at this end of the pasture. This morning we smiled at seeing a very young calf out in the wet grass, at sunrise, with some fog in the distance. Of course it was a photo opportunity, however fleeting. The closer I got, the more the mama watched me and eventually told the baby to run. Run away from the human! And so they ran.
I stayed outside for a little while and captured a few photos of our blossoming crabapple tree and the lilac bush. I had hoped blossoms would be more plentiful this year after the good rains. Our crabapple tree may be getting old or the years of drought have just taken their toll. I just don't have as many blossoms as in years past.
This lilac bush is also getting older but still produces beautiful blossoms with wonderful fragrance. Our newer bush is growing well and I have ideas for more.
The hills are so green, the bunnies are out and about, the chickens are laying eggs, and we have enjoyed the recent rains. If this is the last of the rains, Mother Nature did fairly well this year and we appreciate it.
Have a nice Monday!
