This Morning ~


last night
rain fell, on and on
our dusty roads no longer dusty

today's air
crisp clean invigorating


I am reminded of the first time I visited Montana
it was this time of year
I fell in love 


we woke to our first snow of the season
mountains cloaked in white

  6. Beautiful! That's what I thought it would look like up there today. Our mountains around here received about 4 inches at elevations above about 6000 feet too.

  14. I can see why you feel in love with the mountains. Lucky you!

    Did I tell you I saw the town of Whitefish on HGTV? I have been wondering since if it had a fabric shop.

  25. Lovely images Tammie. We've been told here in Scotland to expect a cold, frosty and snowy winter.
