Dayle was mowing the yard and came in to tell me that he saw a nice buck was sauntering across the flower field across the road from us.. so I grabbed my camera and went out with him to see it. I saw it had gone up the hill and snapped this photo, just as it decided to lay down and hide a bit. Do you see him? When cropping this shot I realized how pretty it was with the picket fence of our neighbor's house and the rose bush and all, with the afternoon light slanting across everything.Coming back to the house I saw this flower, it comes back every single year without fail.. do you know what it is?
Then I spotted this rabbit in the front yard lit up by the sun. I think it's neat that the animals seem to be enjoying the summer, too! :-)
I can't get enough of Rose Campion.. it's an old-fashioned farm flower and I adore it. We have it all over.
These flowers seem to be saying.. "LOOK AT ME"!
My pinkie purply Astilbe is blooming.. pardon the weeds.. we're a wild farm garden here. :-)
It's absolutely perfection here today. Our windows are open and cool breezes are blowing in, scented with grasses and pines, the birds are singing and we're enjoying our day. I will head out to swim in a bit. I hope you are having lovely summer weather where you are!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
