Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

Picture this

This is another of my little walks,mostly a picture post . I always try to take the camera, sometimes I get great shots, sometimes none at all , but this evening as I went out to check cows...

 The late day sun in spring sets the world alight  
 coppery reds

 golds and green seem lit from within

 the grass seems to  somehow have  an emerald tone 
even more muted colors seem to be crisper & brighter 

Definitely a good time of day to be taking pictures. and it doesn't hurt to have such  beautiful  subjects to photograph, though  I might be a little biased .
Not much new here, hope to get some things done over the weekend with the horses. Comet had an odd injury high in his inner hind that needs a bit of follow up cleaning(he is not sore any more just watching to be sure it heals well ) Also I am going to work on my flower beds too(those who know me and  my gardening skills try not to laugh)   
Stay safe everyone, and have a wonderful Mothers day .

Quite the markings on that little one's face.

I know nothing of your gardening skills BUT just the thought of gardening makes me think I should post pics of what my poor gardens look like. All last summer with no care, not good. I couldn't find "real" plants in there if I wanted to. I have no idea how I'm going to get them cleaned out and leave anything good behind. Makes me tired just thinking about it. So whatever you do, it's bound to be better than this. LOL
