May Newsletter

Greetings, all. I do hope you are enjoying our beautiful spring weather. I just love seeing green sprouts bursting through the brown earth and listening to the spring birds, especially the robins. First ones up and last ones to bed. Love those robins. And don’t even get me started on Sandhill Cranes. True love.

I was in even drier country than MT for the first two weeks of April. Exploring the vast landscapes of northern New Mexico was so exciting and humbling. The photo I’m including in this newsletter was taken at Georgia O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch outside of Santa Fe. What a magical and awe-inspiring place. We had a great trip, yet I was so glad to come back to the Bozone, even if it did snow on us the night we returned. Gotta love it.

Here’s what’s coming up in May. Hope to see you at one or more of the venues.
