Rife With Rainbows. Winsome Farms, mid-August 2015

These should be the dog days of August and, in truth, they are seven kinds of stinking hot and miserable. After a rainy spring and early summer, green fields are now finally yielding to a dusty brown.  Grass is dry as tinder. The ground is baked Colorado hard and we’re not even going to talk […]
