More Prairie Flowers, More Elvis

The pastures are looking quite pretty with an abundance of prairie flowers.

Indian Paintbrush
Castilleja integra

Early Purple Milkvetch
Astragalus shortianus

Jan and I went to the Kathleen Raine clinic yesterday.  It was at a gorgeous facility, so impressive that Jan decided to move Elvis there so she can pursue her dressage goals more seriously.  I will post a barn tour later in the week, but meanwhile, here's a glimpse of the lovely outdoor arena.

Pretty flowers. Cool bee!

Your flower photos are beautiful. I love seeing varieties that don't grow around here.

What did you think of the clinic?

Hi Louise,

I'm glad you like our flowers, 'cause I sure like yours!

The clinic was great. Kathleen is encouraging, relaxed and low-key. And best of all, it's free to audit her clinics. She comes to Colorado once a month.

What a gorgeous ring! I can see why she'd want to move her horse out there. At first I thought you were kidding (like, yeah, wouldn't we all! LOL), but it's great that she'll be able to!

Pretty flowers as always!

Love the flowers! Elvis sure had a brief visit. Hope he got caught up on his horse gossip with the others!

Hi Java's Mom! Good to hear from you - you inspired my blog. I have problems with my comments, and I don't know why yours isn't showing up.

Anyway, I'm off to Elvis' in a bit, so I'll email tonight with gravel info. Meanwhile, here's a post from when we put ours in -
