summer days...reveled

they are full of sunshine...lazy moments....fresh flowers.

we have celebrated holidays & birthdays.




watched our grand~baby garnet's first year fly by.


there have been bike riding days, fostering dogs days
until they could find their forever homes.

barrett, fiona, and sammy.
one thing about these days is there is never enough time.
we have harvested many different times.

we have added four sheep to the farm.

enjoyed beautiful blooms...

herbs and lettuces.
been blessed with volunteer flowers that packed a punch.


eaten from the garden.



had our girl times.

spent camp weeks at kid on stage.

enjoyed the firepit.


wore our hair up...

and let our hair down.
spent time with friends.



and family.


time with our babies.
we have had traveling days.

tye~dying times.

puppy days.

watched sunrises....


sunsets.








we have had our share of bar ~ b ~ que and wine.



we have eaten al fresco, eaten out and eaten in.



spent saturday mornings at the farmers market.

getting amazing things to eat.


enjoyed sunflowers.

... dill blooming.

comos and skippers.

observed the tendrils of watermelon.

saw our veggie garden in full tilt.


took in countless blooms.




relished in the the eibles from the garden.

Just amazing! Beautiful pictures, as always. I love the country!

The girls have been picking wild blackberries and Hannah made the most delicious black tea/blackberry sorbet.

Your summer looks like it's been absolutely wonderful! We haven't had many cookouts because it's been too darn hot! I would love to live 'out in the country' like you do, with all that land! Just beautiful.
