Watching the sunset and enjoying the rays of Heaven being cast by all the grey clouds moving out of the Missoula Valley. It was beautiful.

Enjoying a nice Spring day. I'm grateful to have the honor of introducing the next generation to the wonders and joys of spending time outdoors in nature.

I love to stroll around my home and see what new things are sprouting, and how previously sprouted things are coming along. I love to see the grass growing tall, and every type of plant flourishing and doing well.

My simplest pleasure is to sit on a rocking chair in the late afternoon sun after the work day (currently have a desk job) and rest among all the life growing around me.

Watching the local wildlife go about their day.  This morning I had the joy of seeing the little Red Fox trot along the back property line and squeeze through the neighbor's fence to hunt mice in his field. Black bushy tail straight up, “hoppity, hoppity, hop”! Too cute.

One of my "keep the deer away" tricks is to pin golf-ball sized clumps of poodle fur around around the garden. I enjoy watching the hummingbirds and some yellow birds (maybe warblers?) trying to steal the fur to line their nests. They won't take the old ratty balls, but I always put fresh out in the spring and they find it pretty quick.

I love just watching interactions between our dogs and cats and our new cockerel and how he joins in with two hens working together to protect their new family of goslings on their first day outside. Just checking of course.

Didi and the cat pretend to be "busy"



Ninja just can't work this out



Jessie (Who is blond) gets in too close



The cockerel chased her and then the hen too!



Then the cockerel shouted obscenities at her...

More of my recent hiking in Missoula! It has been very nice outside lately!






And, I got to pet someone's pet goats that they took with them hiking, yesterday!
