AC: Earth Day



Love love love
for 
our Planet
Earth

~

We really do have pretty rocks here in Montana
I found a surprise turquoise colored rock in the forest last weekend
I am told it is copper that makes the pretty color:


This past winter saw the end of my bridge, it broke. 
Today I built a new one.
Such a wonderful feeling of accomplishment!


Now I can walk from the earth on one side of the creek 
to the earth other side, yay! 


Last week I drove an hour north
seeking wildflowers. 
I was delighted to find the lovely Pasque flower and our native bumble bee!

So much love for our planet and all it's wonderful treasures!

  1. I visited Montana a little over 25 years ago, and loved the scenery. The pics and artwork are so lovely and remind me of those times. Hope your weekend is totally amazing! Hugs...RO

    1. Thank you Carole. A smile is a lovely response. Yes, go sit, if only for a little while. I have been in the woods this morning and I feel as though it set everything in me 'right'.

  8. Montana is so beautiful! I need to come visit it again. <3 your Earth spirit is lovely and embodies so much love. Also, well done for building the bridge! Wow! I was just at the cabin today...checking to make sure that poxy pack rat is long gone...and was thinking how nice it would be to have a patio out over the little lake. Just a little thing, like your bridge, just someplace to sit and be.

    1. Thank you Veronica for enjoying my earth spirit.
      And for the pat on the back for the bridge. I feel like that too!

      Yay to have the pack rat gone. They are cute and soft but do NOT belong in our homes.
      Places outside to sit are wonderful, especially if we are not getting eaten alive by mosquitos. Usually I have those nasty buggers. Last summer was not bad. I hope this year is similar.

      Someday maybe you will have a place to sit out over your lake.

  15. Your paintings and words are so delightful, weaved into each other. Such a beautiful stone. And bumble bee. We don't see those bumble bees here, at least I think so.
