View from a Saddle

My family and I gathered up a small bunch of cows and calves this evening from the pasture. It was so much fun to ride through tall, green grass again. It's been a long time coming. I remember doing this same ride a couple of years ago in tears -- it was so dry, there was no grass with dust boiling up behind the cows.


This is Prickly Pear Cactus in bloom. It's a beautiful rose-type blossom. The grass is so tall, it hides them from view until you're right on top of them.

  1. We were in a long drought that is over now, I know how you feel. Isn't it a relief to see green again??

  3. You're right! I am a cowgirl, and yes, it's a huge relief to be green and wet here again.

  5. Grass is what we grow on the prairie. If there's a tree growing, a man (or woman or child) put it there. Lots of sky to go with the prairie.
