The pastures are looking lovely
All rich and green. The whirring insects, large and small hover in and around each blade of grass
The roses are still bright and cheerful, spilling heavily all along the building and even rambling onto the rooftop
June has been lovely this year.
The first of the mean-spirited biting flies (horse and deer) have arrived adding their buzzing drone to the air
Gradually I’m developing immunity to their vampire bites so I can be out longer and longer without itching to death.
Not long now until the first day of Summer. The longest day.
A day of joyful celebrations! The peak of the Sun’s long reach, before the lingering light starts turning to dusk.
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
P.S. Are you getting tired of birds taking off? I get a kick out of taking their photo while they fly up, up to get away from me. But I could try something else…possibly.
