No bluebird ever prettier

28 10 2020

It didn’t take long for our Colorado bluebird skies to return after a day of snow. The welcome sight of stars overnight means cold, cold temps in the morning.

Those single-degree temperatures mean the dirt roads solidify again in their frozen state, which enables access to the places where the wild things roam. And that clear, sunny sky also means that bright ol’ sun melts snow faster than the air temp would have you believe. … Which means that before long, that solid road you rolled in on isn’t so solid when you finally get the unmistakable message that it’s time to leave the wild things!

Madison and Temple were finding plenty to eat as they browsed amid the snowy lumps and bumps … and napped … and browsed again.

We got enough white stuff to make the earth happy for a little while – and very soggy! And not nearly enough so that we’re (still, again) wanting more. ๐Ÿ™‚


As it turns out, this white, wet bounty for us coincides with my mom’s birthday today! So the photo of two beautiful, strong mares fits nicely with the beautiful, strong woman who is my mom, Nancy. ๐Ÿ™‚ She did say that the snow was better here (in Colorado) than there (in Texas). She grew up with horses (and other animals) on her family’s farm and her grandparents’ nearby farm in Ohio, so she knows snow.

Happy birthday, Mom! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love you!
