Where is the summer going to?
The Hopi Squash are getting ripe, the cosmos are getting ready to explod into colors in the garden. All is so beautiful.
The sun is moving towards the south as the earth tilts, racing towards fall.
Our nights are actually pretty cold for this time of hear. We were in the 40's this morning. It has made the bees sleepy and lazy. Better to photograph them though as they are madly buzzing about.
On our way to go fishing at Blackhawk Park on Wednesday we saw trees that were turning. What a surprise! I don't know if they were damaged trees, sick trees, or just as Rich said. "They are turning because it is time!"
We fished at Blackhawk and enjoyed a few hours of peace and tranquility. The fish weren't really biting and the 3 small ones Rich caught were tossed back into the water.
I couldn't help myself with the bright glaring sunlight. Perfect for Infrared photos and not so great for regular shots.
Thursday was another whirlwind day. Off we went to the Madison VA to do Speech Therapy. Towards evening, I had promised to go visit a 4H family and walk around and inspire the kids to take their photos for the upcoming fair.
To say the least, we had fun!
Their farm is on a high ridge top with amazing views.
School starts soon and some of the grand kids are coming for another visit.
This weekend will be a whirlwind of activities. My K-town friends are coming to visit. We'll be target practicing with our bows, doing some hiking, and of course seeking beautiful places to photograph.
On Monday Ariel and Dennis will arrive to spend the last week of August with us.
I am looking forward to the fall season.
And more visits to the farm on the ridge....
