So Montana

 Spring equinox
I wandered south with two dear friends


we found wildflowers blooming
in the sage lands
(Yellow Bells, Fritillaria pudica)


a rabbit in a most unlikely place

an old abandoned car


buttercups
high in the hills


an old barn

So Montana


a herd of deer


one with antlers


curious horses 


all in the Sage Lands of Montana

Sweet Spring 
or
Autumn 
to each of you

  4. What a wonderful road you took with your friends and so many lovely things to see along the way. That adorable little rabbit and the yellow bells and buttercups feasting our eyes with their sunshine vibrations! Love the horses with their pointy ears looking at you with interest, perchance you have a carrot or an apple in your pocket!

    1. no carrot or apple, that would have been nice. they were simply curious of us.
      it was a wonderful road to wander along and see what there was to see and it was endless the treasures along it!

  7. What a sweet bunny -- and what a fine eye you have to spot that discretely concealed bunny!

    1. bunnies do not show themselves often. They usually hide long before i see them. I think arriving by car is how we did it.

  11. I want to follow that dusty road with you and see the Yellow Bells myself! Our winter has returned with more snow on the way. Smell the flowers for me and keep an eye out for the Calypso Orchids!

    1. Hello Barb,

      It would be fun to share the dusty road with you. So fun to be able to see wildflowers before they appear here.
      Wow wow to all the snow. We have gotten some in our moutons, today it is rain at my elevation.
      I will be looking for the Calypso! They usually bloom in my woods the end of May. Hoping to see other lady slippers too.

      sweet spring to you!

  12. What a nice way to celebrate the first day of spring! Sage green is one of my favorite colors. It is a real treat to see it in the wild. Thanks for sharing the flowers. We had snow today.

  14. Hello, so happy to be here again, and this nature and animals are awesome! So fun with the rabbit in the old car, wondering what does he/she think about that, maybe a proper house for it, or a hiding place.
    Wishing you a lovely early Spring time! :)

  16. Love. Pure love. Those rabbits, those curious horses (my favorites) all say LOVE to me. The quiet of nature always takes me home.

    Tammi Lee, thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. ENJOY THIS DAY!

  17. Whenever I see an old, often dilapidated barn I shut my eyes, and try to visualize the barn being built. The walls, the roof, even the animal arrival. How much excitement when into it. The promise of a new start, on a new land. At one time, every old barn was once new. Love.

    1. That is a lovely thing to do Karen. I often wish the building could tell it's tales. Who it housed, what happened there, etc.

    Happy Tuesday Tammie!

    1. Yes, it is raining here as well. But not pouring like I hear it is farther south. Fun to think of you passing that barn today. Yes, last weekend was beautiful.

  21. What a lovely old barn! I like it. The yellow flower is a pretty spring sign.
    Your deer is very different from the deer living in our Nara Park. There are around 1000 deer in the Park. They are very tamed. Have a good new week,Tammie.

    1. 1000 deer is a lot of deer! This herd was large as well. I usually only see 2- 6 deer at one time. Our deer are not tame, unless you feed them (but we are not suppose to do that), then they become more tame.

  25. Another beautiful post .... nothing like a road trip to start off my morning ♥

  26. What a lovely walk with your friends! You’d be an expert of hide-and-seek to have found a rabbit in such a place, I guess. I like the barn standing alone under the big sky and the charming wildflowers and wildlife. Sweet spring to you, too.

  27. Hi Tammie, I was not around a while and only today enjoyed your beautiful last posts. From snow and ice to the first lovely flowers of the new season, so great. And all these lovely deer! :-)

    Here spring is almost over - we were lucky and had a lot of rain which started the new growth early on and it was plenty. Israel has a big range of wildflowers. My blog shows a link to my husbands picasa albums, if you are interested to have a look.

    Enjoy your spring time!

  31. The road and the barn as if are taken from a Western film - I expect to see the cowboys...:)Such a specific atmosphere! I haven't seen a yellow bell before - what a beauty!
    Happy Spring, Tammie!!!
