True words..............

"Grown don't mean nothing to a mother.  A child is a child.  They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that supposed to mean?  In my heart it don't mean a thing."          Toni Morrison,  Beloved

Joyous Easter..................

This is the front of a card I hang on the wall in my cottage.  It never fails to lift my heart.  Hope you have a wonderfuly, hopeful and joyous Easter.  "He is not here, He is risen. Just as He said.

Sandhill Cranes..................

 We spotted these Sandhill Cranes outside of town this last weekend.  They were in a stubble field and almost blended in with the background.

We've seen them occasionally around here but it is exciting.  I think they're migrating through.  I can only imagine how amazing it would be to see masses of them like in Nebraska.

I'm sorry the quality of these shots isn't great.       Diane

New calves............

Little brown or black dots are scattered across the fields along with their mamas.  This is the time of the year that the little calves are born.  It gives my heart a lift to see new life. Leonard explained to me once that there are baby sitter cows.  One cow will be surrounded by many little ones allowing the other mothers time to graze.  They take turns so that everyone has a chance to graze peacefully.  Kind of neat, isn't it?

One Day Spring....................

Two days ago I had to shed my sweat shirts on our walk.  The sun felt delicious and it was just a wonderful warm day.  I did a little yard work,

The next morning we woke up to this.  The yard work will have to wait a while.  In the meantime, all this moisture is going to have everything beautiful and green.

Betwixt and between..................

The day before yesterday  I saw a Robin, the first of the year.  The little thing looks a bit like I feel, caught between winter and spring and a little disgruntled about it!!

Yesterday was a beautiful day.  I drove to Billings (120 miles) to see Catherine for her birthday which was exactly one month ago.  Every time I wanted to go up for the day I would wake up to snow.  But yesterday was perfect and we had a great day together. We went to Barnes and Noble and Hobby Lobby and had lunch at a cute cafĂ© before heading back to her house for pie before I left.  No snowstorm, it felt like spring.        Blessings, Diane
