Couldn't help but smile at the cow outbreak. They always look so proud of themselves.

Life on the farm sure isn't boring.

sadly my few hydrangeas are already starting to crisp along the edges from this 100 degree weather...and its only the first of June. I love them like in your photo...that time when the color seeps into the petals!

Martin -- the tobacco and hay aren't ours. It's been twenty some years since we grew tobacco and our fields are all needed for pasture -- we have to buy hay. We used to have a second farm an hour away where John kept cattle and made hay but that too is in the past.

Beautiful photos! Such rich colors.

Yes, we've done it, got to another summer.
Hurrah, it feels like it was only yesterday that we were complaining about cold and ice.

Local farmers are cutting the hay around here as well. The fields are so beautiful with the neat round bales and the mountains in the background. Now...if the temperatures would just return to our normal spring weather.

Your photos invite me to go to the country – sigh – can’t make it this time.
I thought about your post on “bully pulpit” where you said that you were musing about words. I do the same sometimes but about translations. I see a word in English translated in French or vice-versa and then think that it is not the exact translation; I mean the exact “feeling” of the word if you know what I mean.
I also loved your early sun photo. Yesterday again we tried to catch the sunset, we drove to Wal-Mart in Dallas, GA, which stands on a hill, but the trees had grown since winter and the sun was behind them. I still have not found one place in Cobb County where I can get a clear shot of a sunset.

What beautiful photos! My hydrangas have put out leaves but, so far, no sign of blooms.

Such a nice "field trip!" + the pear looks really plump already!

Love the turkey vulture. I was worrying about the vultures in our area. There are few right now, when usually there are lots. Love to watch them ride the thermals.
