The Pussywillow is always the first sign of Spring in western Montana.


The Aspen, one of the favorite foods of the Ruffed Grouse, has its own version. These buds are much larger than those of the willows.

The wild country is starting to explode with spring colors and this little Yellow Bell gets a lot of mileage out of yellow, considering that it’s only three inches tall.

Nature has a very pleasant way of signaling the changing of Her seasons.

No one know why they’re here, but these toxic little plants just stand around and look pretty in the early spring. I know of no use for Buttercups, and I’ve had no luck at all transplanting them.

But I’m glad they‘re here!
