Lots of random pix I've taken over the last week or so.
Early one morning we had mist in front of the butte so only the tip top showed. This, coupled with a setting full moon, made for a neat pre-dawn shot.
The kids were invited to join some neighbors in the city last week. Here they're waiting to be picked up.
Red, one of our roosters.
On a misty morning, a deer stood on alert right outside our yard fence. She knew the dogs couldn't get to her.
Leaping over first one fence...

Our neighbor's kittens are at the seriously adorable stage.

Matilda in the daisies.
Speaking of daisies...
I bought this plate many many years ago. It hangs over my kitchen sink. In the background, the father milks a cow; in the foreground the mother makes cheese. To me, it denotes many positive things in a single picture (click to enlarge): a farm, cheesemaking, a family working together, and a family that obviously loves each other.
Some of the pieces I'll be bringing with me to Portland.
Blooming tiger lilies.
