Officially the first day of summer, it arrived last night at 10:31pm. It certainly doesn’t feel like summer, it’s only in the mid 80’s. After a week of scorching temperatures, our high was 106. That was hot. Wheat harvest has started, but was slowed a bit today after some showers last night.
The sky was so blue with bright puffy clouds. Just had to get out!!
Grader ditch with old fashion day lilies
Wheat field ready to be cut
The cattle need a bigger shade tree
Less traveled backroad
Today was the first cool morning we’ve had all week. It was wonderful to be out for an early morning walk.
A little sun dog.
We were out just after sunrise. In fact we woke up a little fawn that was in the tall grass along side the road. I wasn’t able to get any photos of it as I had to get ahold of Wylie! The little fawn ran along the road and then went back into the tall grass. Mom was out in the field watching!!
Cone Flowers Echinacea growing in the ditch. Some people use the flower buds and leaves for tea. I was taught to dig the root for tea. That’s what I drank last winter to boost my immune system. Just steep the root and enjoy!!
My therapy. We are so blessed to be out on the backroads. No other sounds, just Nature
Headed home from our walk, cowboys were in the pasture gathering cattle. Beautiful morning to be on horseback. Wishing you a wonderful blessed day.
Sunrise welcomes a hot (not quite) summer day. Doesn’t seem possible that the summer solstice is just a few days away.
My butterfly milk weed and spiderwort are beautiful this year.
While I was watering the zinnias I this guy crawled out of the mud.
Peonies were so pretty, but I lost a lot of honeysuckle (that grew on the chicken fence) to the cold weather we had in February.
