Snow

We had the first measurable snow of the season.  It started Saturday night and continued into Sunday for a total of 8″.  Schools were closed, know the kids loved that!

I don’t think we will be dining outside today.

Wylie enjoying the snow, do you think?

 

Last night fog developed and it made for a beautiful start to the day.  The fog froze on the trees and grasses, I wished I could of captured the beauty of the trees sparkling like diamonds in the sun.

See the moon

State Flower

The native wild sunflower is the official state flower of Kansas.

A field of sunflowers that were planted in June will be harvested when they turn brown and dry out.

 

I like the tall one.  It’s watching over everyone.

Heads are bowed.  Starting to dry out.

Native sunflowers can be seen in field and in roadside ditches.

 

 

These aren’t sunflowers, but they are yellow and SO pretty.

 

 

 

More Rains And Flooding

We are certainly stuck in a rainy weather pattern. A few hot and humid days then stormy weather returns. This morning I emptied an overflowing rain gauge filled with 5 inches of rain.

Farmer Dry Creek

It will be a few days before I have to mow!!

Outlet at McPherson State Fishing Lake.  A 46 acre fishing lake just west of Maxwell Wildlife Refuge built in 1954.

Impassable low water crossing due to the release of the fishing lake.

Of course I had to stop and take pictures of the wildflowers.

Field of wheat that is flooded

Turn Around – Just south of Hobbs Creek Road, Saline County, KS

We are certainly needing some hot dry windy days so the farmers can get into the fields to harvest.  Praying for them.
