Apple blossoms

This evening, in the rain,

I took a lonely walk up the road;

where I encountered a little tree,

a volunteer that bears the sweetest fruit around.

She shared her blossoms with me…

and I am content.

Yellow hills and purple flowers

While capturing the scenes of the yellow hills I discovered that the Larkspur were also in bloom. It was a nice reward from Mother Nature for climbing the hill to photograph the sunflowers.

Cascade on Spring Creek

This small fall in a series that stretches for miles has a drop of about four feet. The creek is running full now from snow melt on Big Hole Peak, 6 miles upstream and four thousand feet above.

Three seasons

Filed under: Spring — Tags: , , , , — montucky @ 9:02 pm

The weather here has been summer-like for the past two weeks and now if you look in the right direction you can see three of Nature’s seasons in one frame from the valley at 2400 feet to the peaks at 7000 feet. The snow-capped peaks in the distance are part of the Coeur d’Alene Mountains sitting inside the Cherry Peak roadless area just to the south of the Clark Fork River. The tall white bushes are Saskatoons in bloom, the small white flowers are Woodland Stars and the newly blooming Chickweed and, of course, the orange Arrow-leaved Balsamroot.
