I am greeted with a punch of color !

Star Lily

In the Back Yard:


Pink and Yellow Dahlia





Gladiolas





Dinner Plate Dahlias...




The blooms are the size of a dinner plate 

for sure !





I spray paint metal bed frames

and use them as flower fencing.



The summer flowers have inspired

my quilting over the years:

Mother Nature has always been my best friend

when it comes to choosing the colors

in my quilt designs.

Elk in the Hay Field...


Last evening the Elk herd

came down from the timber...



Their spring calves 

could not jump over the fence,

so are waiting for them in the top left 

of this photo above.



These images were taken through the

living room window, so aren't the best quality.

If you double click them, they will enlarge.



There is a Blue Heron sitting in a tree

along the river watching the elk graze...





There are 5 elk cows with their yearling calves

in the hay field...

and their new spring calves 

on the other side of the fence.


The sun was setting quickly,

but I manage to get them on video....enjoy!
