High Summer—-Sunday, July 16, 2017

It is high summer the sky is a clear blue, the heat is elevated, afternoon thunder storms roll in cooling us down; ย the humidity causing us pant in desperation

Yet the summer has been good…all the hay is sold; first and second cuttings.

Blade helped…nice for him and for us!

The corn is starting to tassel out!

The pinto beans are growing right along…

The last cultivation of all crops is over for the rest of the year! ๐Ÿ™‚

High Summer…the best part of the year.

Come winter I will be assailed by memories

Of these innocent heat filled days.

Come winter…

….I won’t think of that bleak time ahead. Instead I will enjoy this spot in time.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

    Yes! Colorado’s weather is the very best of anywhere this time of year. Days can be amazingly satisfying.

  2. Lovely hollyhocks. We had all different colors when I was a kid, white, yellow, pink, red and almost black (my favorite). They grew mixed in a patch of mixed color phlox (white, pink, lavender) and the combination just means summer for me. I wish the hollyhocks and phlox were more popular, so many people tore out old patches of phlox (I admit, they did need to be kept in bounds and they’re tenacious perennials). I love summer.

    • It is! He leaves this week to go stay with his Uncle in the eastern part of Colorado. Jeff is a large diesel mechanic so wants to give Blade some exposure to mechanic work.
