MT





last night. blissful & melancholy. is that possible.




horse ona hill.



washing four cups of dandelions for the wine.
my recipe: (i can't give you my word that it will work for another year.)
four cups dandelion flowers. no leaves. wash.
eight cups water. --boil
add three cups sugar and a bit of honey
add flowers and 
one orange-juice and rind cut up
one lemon same as orange
some sage
some raisins
ok, boil all that. for one hour.
let sit over night. 
once cool add a cup of blueberries that are organic and have a white film of yeast still. basically find some local ones or what not.
ok so let that all sit three weeks.
i poured mine in bottles, covered with cloth, and left in the basement. 
my grandma will cap them in three weeks. 
i think you may want to remove the blueberries, but i am not going to. ha.






montana is big sky country, even says so on the license plates.


 peanut butter cup for breakfast!


last saturday night, so i made a raw chocolate pudding and berry pie, and forced everyone to try it.
almond crust, chocolate center, berry top and vanilla frosting. chocolate mint cookie top.
should i write the roundabout recipe?




gluten free apple bread


pb cup

i spent 1.5 hours staring at the sky. i had almost forgotten how fun it is to find images in the clouds. the one above is an old 19th century man.
a for adventure!

fire victim.



holiday tree! smells niiiice



old out house 

poppy, from a cultivated batch a long time ago. poppys reseed themselfs once they dry out.



wild rose

thistle

Sun flower!

mountain smoke not in bloom.

mountain smoke in bloom.

mountain smoke in full bloom. aka dr. suez character.

wild bergamot aka beebalm. leaves are toothed and it will produce a purple flower. leaves grow across from each other. has a yummy smell. likes the sun! it can be used as a seasoning but i plan on using it for tea.

if you eat a puffball, which i seem to find in open sunny meadows, grassy areas and on the north side of the mountain, you want them white all the way thru. the pictured above is a NON example!

everyday is sunday in montana

ok, so everyday is like the weekend here. i can do whatever i want. it's great. it's unrealistic? unless i stumbled into a bag of endless money next week, i'll be needing a job after yoga training. o, did i mention it's official...i'm going to yoga training..in indonesia...because that's just how i do things. (my grandma told me yesterday i was a determined little child, even at 4 months) back to what i was saying, i need money and a kick ass job. none of these bullshit on-my-ass-stuck-in-a-building-9-5 jobs. and i don't live in lala land, i am just determined to live how i want. in peace.

some people came to visit for a few days today, which is cool because i plan on taking these days as days of solitude for myself. i don't feel like shooting the shit and trying to explain what i plan on doing with my life. i'm going go camp out and stare at the stars. i'm taking hol with me because i can ride him bareback on mini trips.










those are pics of the stuffed morels with roasted salsify roots and fresh flowers, dandelion tea, puff ball mushroom (i plan on attempting next), wild mint, and deer!
