So very beautiful! Thank you for sharing these stunning photos that capture the essence of your amazing state. It appears as if it was one of your seventy or so sunny days of the year! Photos speak a language of their own and invoke thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Oh, and that bear seemed too close for comfort! Hopefully that shot was taken from within the safe confines of your home.
I’ll admit that the bear was on the other side of my car, but don’t tell anybody, Kathy.
Laura, my lips are sealed about the bear!!! But how did I miss all of those beautiful heartshaped rocks in your garden!!! Simply stunning!!!!
Wonderful photos and the emotions they evoke. I have that exact medal artwork – “Live your life in the moment.” It hangs in my bedroom and reminds me to breathe as I head out into the day.
My husband gave that to me when I got my book deal and it inspires a smile everytime I look at it. Glad to know that same sign has found its way into another heart. yrs. Laura
These pictures are utterly breathtaking. To me they symbolize not the beauty of Montana (though that is something to behold) but the essence of peace. A summer house in the mountains is the epitomy of simplistic glory, and you have shown that here in your picture essay. (I particularly love the heart-shaped handfulls of blueberries.) I must find and purchase that metal artwork…
It’s nice to share visually as where I live is so glorious this time of year. Thanks for sharing back! yrs. Laura
So gorgeous! My aunt used to live in Montana but unfortunately she moved before I was old enough to go visit her. Enjoy the beauty!
Hi, Zara. If you come to Montana, put Glacier National Park at the top of your list. So gorgeous. The whole state, really. yrs. Laura
A picture IS worth a thousand words, and so I think this makes you at least a millionaire. With scenery like this, who’s counting?
It’s an embarassment of riches this time of year. Glad to share the wealth here. Thanks for showing up, Barbara. Stay in touch! yrs. Laura
These pictures are really beautiful! I love the heart photo, and the dog picture in your wild flower garden is priceless. The dog looks very much like my five month old black lab mix named Jake.
That heart photo is a handful of huckleberries. Jake, met Ziggy. Ziggy meet Jake. yrs. Laura
got a room for rent?
Yeah, and it’s got your name on it KEDB. xx
That’s a mighty fine bear you got there!
I like the dog sitting keeping guard at the gate!
enjoy the sunshine.
That dog is usually under my feet when I’m writing and I have a feeling that she would do just about anything for me. Sometimes, I swear she speaks English. Thanks for seeing her in her gate guarding glory, Fiona. yrs. Laura
Laura! I love Montana in the summer (the whole 3 1/2 weeks of it)! I miss you and love reading your blog. It has been a pleasure to get to share space with you and hopefully we’ll get to share wine and space again soon!
This year I’m really feeling those 3 1/2 weeks fleeting. Forcing myself out of my office and out into these here hills! yrs. Laura
The pictures remind me to pause.
They remind me to look around and breathe.
They remind me to slow down and be in the moment.
Pausing is what I’m all about this summer. Let’s pause together soon! xo Laura
Can you set this up for a horse riding destination? It looks wonderful!
Lovely photos! I and my camera need to make it there during your brief summer next year.
So the bear was in your driveway? Yikes!
Love how the photos allow us readers of your cherished memoir to get closer to your life. It’s as though you’ve extended the reading experience for us! Thank you for sharing. They remind me of Kafka’s quote “Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
Your blog has captured my attention. As a child growing up in Montana I was unaware of the beauty and serenity that surrounded me. Fortunately, as I write the stories of my childhood, I can see Montana through new eyes. Thank you so much for your charming pictures of what I call “the first and best place on earth.” I’m a new subscriber to you blog and look forward to many more posts.
Welcome, Jan. I’m so glad I can help re-capture your Montana youth in photos and essays. I love raising kids here. They often wish we lived in town, but I know deeply that this land is a part of their foundation. In their bones and under their skin and I’m glad for them for just that. yrs. Laura
