Coneflower Beauty

IMG_1432-brighter-signedAnother photo from my garden, coneflowers this time.  I would like to get other colors of coneflowers but all I have right now are the pink ones.

I have no stitching projects to show as there is very little stitching going on right now.  It seems like all my time is either spent taking care of my many flower beds, vegetable garden or traveling to grandchildren’s events.  Just yesterday we went west 2 hours to our granddaughters county fair and watched them show their 4-H sheep.  It is always fun and we enjoy watching them in the show.  They don’t get the top ribbons but do ok and they should be proud as they do all the work for their animals unlike some who just show the animal in the ring and the parents do all the feeding and grooming.  Our granddaughters know it all as they do it all with guidance of course from their parents.  Next week we will travel only an hour this time to go see our two grandsons show their sheep.  Will be fun to see the youngest as this will be his first time as a 4-Her to show his sheep.  He is getting excited for the fair to be here.

Happy Summer,

Day Lily

IMG_1160Enjoy looking at one of the beautiful Day Lilies in my flower beds.  Gardening takes time and the results are most times either good to eat or beautiful to look at.

Storm Clouds

IMG_1375This last week we had a storm roll through towards sunset time.  It had the most unusual cloud formations and you could hear the wind roaring above as the clouds passed over.20140706-IMG_1384It was light out until the clouds started blocking the sky.  You can see large thunderheads in the distance over our barn roof.  It was starting to rain so I ducked under our porch roof to take this photo.20140706-IMG_1378  The distant clouds are so pretty when illuminated by the almost setting sun.  You can see the top of the pivot irrigation system over the top of the corn in the photo above.IMG_1387A parting photo before I went back into my house as it was just starting to pour rain.  We only got .40” but thankful for no strong winds on the ground and no hail which would be devastating to our crops at this point in the growing season.

Until Later,
