Taking a brief break from the Hawaii shots to share our farm life with you. As I post this, I've got salsa simmering on the stove ready to be canned, we've just devoured a sweet cantaloupe fresh from the garden and I'm wondering what in the world I'm going to do with all these butternut squash. We have been blessed with a bountiful garden this summer despite the lack of moisture.
The corn and beans fields that surround us are burning up and dying...even the weeds are brown. It looks more like late August instead of late July. We did receive a half inch of rain last night, I was sad I didn't hear it over the hum of the air conditioner :(
The following collage shows some snippets of life the past week. The blue birds have successfully fledged another brood, the sound of sprinklers is constant, my Gracie, the neighbor's runaway horses, a bit of color in a brown landscape, finally some clouds, yep, that's me, more color, my whirly gig, smart frog in the flower garden pomnd, gotta love my garden sunflower, even the birds are panting, the thunderhead clouds from last night, a butterfly, the parched ground and the ranch rover...yes, life is good!!
