Saturday dawned clear–yep, clear–no clouds all day except those pretty, fluffy white ones and just a few of those. The Cowboy raked the hay he cuts for a neighbor early. We decided to take one last ATV ride and rode up the East Boulder to Moccasin Lake. It was a very chilly, windy day so jackets were in order–I’m loving these cooler July temps! This ride is a low key, easy, close to home one we always enjoy.
We’ve never seen such a profusion of wildflowers on this trail as we did Saturday–massive amounts of wild geraniums, Indian paintbrush, columbine–beautiful.
Saturday evening we ventured into town for dinner at the Grand and declined dessert so we could have our ice cream at home. 🙂 🙂
Sandy took these two photos–Tom and Emmi enjoyed the summer day and sunset light illuminating our house.
All those rain clouds we’ve had do make for some gorgeous sunsets!
Sunday morning we said our “see you later” to friends Tom and Sandy. Good friends are one of life’s greatest pleasures and we so enjoyed their company. Come back any time Tom and Sandy!
A meadowlark singing his heart out on top of one of those “finally” finished hay bales. Sunday was another glorious Montana summer day–blue skies, breeze, and only a high of 74 degrees–but the heat is coming, it’s on it’s way!
Sunday we installed a roll out awning I had purchased hoping it would provide some shade on our south facing sunny deck. It may help some but not as much as I had hoped. Monday temps were warmer–I guess it is July 22! ;)–summer may have arrived. The Cowboy hauled hay bales today and I did some weed spraying, weed whacking and mowing–whew!
