Summer's Gold

                               

"Fairest of the months
Ripe summer's queen
The hey-day of the year
With robes that gleam with sunny sheen
Sweet August doth appear."

~ R. Combe Miller

so beautiful and with this, it could be now or 100 years ago or 500 years ago. Lost in the beauty of time

Can you believe July is already in the past?!? The year is truly flying by!

Lovely blog!

and none too soon doth it appear! July was a washout for three weeks. We need to keep the sun shining now. Any ideas?

Hi There, Did you hear me hollering this afternoon???? I was so so happy... We finally (first time in over 2 weeks) got a little rain...We only got 1/2 an inch --but that's okay.. We were getting very very dry again...

Gorgeous summer photo.... The color is awesome.
Hugs,
Betsy
