You know you're in Montana when...

... you can still see cowboys on a daily basis! I love it! This photo was in our local newspaper today.

Ranch hands brave the rain on a recent afternoon to check on cattle on the Milesnick place north of Belgrade. Cool weather, more rain and mountain snow are predicted for the next few days. that combination prompted the National Weather Service to issue flood watches, or warnings, in Gallatin and Park counties. This is a photo by Diedre Eitel of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.

Chain of Blogs/Inspiring Women

I love how blogs work. You start at one place and end up connected to many blogs later! After looking at Sarah's fabulous blog (which I visit often) I noticed she had mentioned Jude's blog, which I also visit often and absolutely love. Jude has been using tiny fabric scraps to create the most beautiful little quilt squares... lovely. Jude then links to Jackie's blog, who is someone I'm not familiar with... oh, wow. That's all I can say. You have to visit her flickr pages. She creates the most spectacular embroidery and textile confections! So now I am inspired by Jude's Tiny Tuesday project! I really think it's cool how this all works! So, as you can see from my header and this photo (bottom shelf), I have lots of little pieces of fabric to use... oh, and I guess that's why my blog is call - REMNANTS! I can't wait to get started!

May Day

Happy May Day! May 1st falls directly between the solstice and the equinox - so that's part of the reason for the celebration - check it here ... no, the photo isn't from this year - it's from last year when we actually had flowers! Though many of you having been seeing your garden grow for a month or two, I am just now in the planning stages of what I'm going to plant - I would like to plant some cutting flowers - straw flowers, gerber daisies and such. We have a particularly short growing season here in SW Montana. As I work for the Extension Service I am always promoting their virtues - if you have questions about yards and gardens, canning, family finances, and a bunch of other interesting stuff - check out your local Extension Office - nearly every county in the country has one!
