Mother Natures perogative

So I had this great idea for a post on my way to town on Friday. While driving i encountered a herd of elk, which is very common. The best thing to do when they're loitering around the road is to just stop-not slow down-STOP. So i grabbed by little digital wonder and rolled my window down to snap a quickie of these beasts! And they truely are beasts! All the green that you see in the photo is my neighbors new, tender, baby hay field...which the elk LOVE. So needless to say, i felt really sorry for my neighbor.

Don't get me wrong, i realize that we live in their backyard...that's why we have sewer pipe around our tree trunks, some trees have fences around them and i don't plant anything that they might want to eat.

Now back to mother Nature, when I left the house on Saturday morning to head to a great Country Moving Sale...this is what i found

Enough already! All I want to do is clean out the flower beds and spruce things up a bit for SPRING! Actually we're putting our house up for sale so 'sprucing' is a bit of an understatement! I can't make it shine in my snow boots and parka!

PS: Found a great library table and oak dining table at the Country sale! Come to The Farm Chicks in Spokane WA June 7th & 8th.

Hey girl, I used to live in Colorado and those last few spring snows were killers, but I am back in Iowa now, cause I really know how to suffer...think spring and NO MORE RAIN...our Mississippi is really flooding...what next?
Thanks for stopping by the blog...I'll be back...
