Moose in the Meadow

Cloudy days still!   Sunshine Property has lots of activity, as the tenants  and resident maintenance men are always about.  The pond comes back annually and the fish, even now, are hiding in its depths.  One thirsty, elusive moose left its “calling card” by the unfrozen stream.  Colin and I found edible plants peeking through the cold ground.  The old, unused mine has emptied, no doubt, of winter “residents”.  The cabins are all “spruced up” for seasonal guests.  

“Perhaps the earth can teach us, as when everything seems dead and later proves to be alive.” —Pablo Neruda

I Recognize the Grandeur Midst the Mundane

A day last week was one of many errands, pickups, phone calls, etc. etc.……and yet amid this sometimes  chaotic life of mine,  I notice and feel renewed at the ageless beauty of natural things.

I snapped a picture of the “Sleeping Giant” mountain near Helena, as I took a minute and noticed  just how really awesome, the place I call home.

Life Gets Better in the Hot Tub!

 I love sitting in the hotub listening to the creek & watching the birds in the suet feeder —-birds sometimes having to deal with the bothersome squirrels that also like the feeder. The birds have just arrived and I snapped these shots today.  Named by Lewis & Clark, the famous pair that spent a lot of time here, before anything had more than Native American names. These guys are always first to arrive in Spring.

 Along with the wild animals that visit my deck,  Mittens, my loving & lovable cat, is an observer of all  the activity.

Sprucing Up the Gift Gallery

 Tami and I dusted things off & enjoyed being together while getting the Artisan Studio & Gift Gallery ready for 2019  season.  The bad weather may keep me inside and also gives me a chance to be inspired.  I am honored that Montana Artists display their art in my shop, on consignment usually.   Want to add that Tami Jones is often by my side.  She has been an angel in my life.   Truly……one in a million!

The Pond Makes Magnificent Appearance!

WOW!   The hint of a beautiful Spring around the corner, always reveals first with the pond releasing  its frigid icecap.  Winter had its beauty too,  but this coming season brings absolute elation as “the green” returns.

Montana on your Map?


   I’m embarking on my first blog adventure and it can only get better from here.  I want to speak to you, through words and images, of the magnificent place that my teenage son Colin and I call home.   We not only reside here, our 38 acres also has Sunshine Radon Health Mine, six  cabins, eight RV spots, a guest center& artisan gift gallery. I will soon be posting a schedule for artisan workshops . That lovely gift from the sky, snow, is still on the ground and there isn’t a day without its challenges, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the world.
