Summer!



This year summer seems particularly grand.

How could you not marvel at blue skies and sunshine, a new grapevine taking hold on the trellis?



...toads in the garden...

... blueberries ripening...




... the slightly russet tone of an apple and the similar colors on our sweet hens...

You are so fortunate to have all this and more at this time of the year!!! I envy you...we are still having 100+ temps and there is not much growing here except weeds! We won't start to cool off till late Sept, early October. Your chickens are surely growing...have you named them?

It's been our hottest & driest year ever and everyone here is LOVING it! A few of the chicken ladies have names... you can tell the araucanas apart, but the buffs are so identical they are just "Miss Buff." Still the battle of the weeds going on in the garden, but Mr. Wonderful & I have plans to tackle them again today.
