Colors of March from Big Sky Country

Sue at Life Looms Large has called for the colors of the month. An old growth juniper against the Sierra Nevada.





Marking the entry for Joe Winter Pottery.






Marking the entry for an abandoned property, someone whose hopes were not realized.







Early Spring stream, runoff from high desert springs and snow melt.








On occasion, a steam forms into a pond, not big enough for fish but big enough to reflect the big sky.


Tinder dry old sagebrush, highly flammable and a huge wildfire risk, but also great kindling for the wood stove.
Big Sky Country.

Great pictures! We've enjoyed blue skies this week too.
Not quite as big though. :-)

Great pictures! I'm surprised to see so much water there, and your constant reminder of snow on the mountains.

I love that juniper picture!!

Thanks for joining the fun!
