  1. Blue & lavender & sage & straw, with a touch of powdered sugar on top! These are the landscape colors that soothe the soul.
    It doesn't get any better than this. Right now.
    Thinking of you!

    1. How weird is that? Our snow is melting fast though, almost faster than I can take pictures of it!

  3. Love those mountains in the background.
    I've been meaning to ask whether you see much native wildlife when you are out taking photos, and if so...what do you see? I don't know much about your region...so am stumped to think what might live out on the mesa's? Coyote’s?

  4. We see plenty of rabbits and lizards. Once in a while there's a coyote or two. In fact, the day I shot this picture we saw two coyotes not far from the truck so we called the dogs in and left. (Don't want any dog/coyote confrontations.)

    1. I though lizards, it's got that sort of feel about it.
      Are rabbits native to the USA or are they introduced like here in Australia? Must be native, didn't the Indians make things out of their fur?
      What do the coyotes do to the dogs? I would have thought the dogs would scare them off?
      Just noticed there's a lot of questions in this post! ;)

    2. I don't think the coyotes would harm the dogs, but Pinto is such a predator....given the opportunity, she will chase anything down. She's also very fast. I just don't want to find out what would happen.

      Yes, rabbits are native to North America. You are right, the native americans did make things out of rabbit fur.
      Good questions....this country is very different from Australia!
