A brisk morning walk down the road

When you can sleep with the windows open, the air conditioning off, and are on the cusp of a National Holiday........

well life can't get much better than this. Here in Wisconsin we are enjoying the tease of what's to come. With the cool, less humid weather. The earth is begging for rain and I try to answer their prayers by nightly waterings. I have even been watering my 15 year old trees. We have not had rain for weeks.

Some large maples and oaks in the area are beginning to drop their leaves, or are starting to change to Fall colors already - because they are so stressed.

The sun flowers in our upper field seem to be doing ok. Much shorter than other years but still blooming. It is funny, our sunflowers don't turn their heads like some full sun fields. They keep looking down towards us and the retreat. Guess the view is better.

If it weren't for the morning dew, we wouldn't have any moisture.

Isn't this spider web in the grass awsome?

And the blades of grass?

Well, back home again and back from vacation. Enjoy your day, patsy
