The Winter Solstice

21 Dec

Today was the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year!


I am so happy for the days to begin lengthening.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  The items are listed at the top of my sidebar.

Nature Walk

9 Nov

My mom and I went for a walk at the nearby marsh this weekend.  It was a beautiful warm day.  It’s been an unusually warm fall, which leaves me concerned.




I truly hope we can keep making gains against global warming.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Can’t Make This Up

5 Nov

Sometimes I get bored with just photographing the farm.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my farm, but sometimes I want to photograph something new or different.  There’s not much opportunity here, so when I saw a hot air balloon while I was on my way back from getting corn out of the corn pool, I hurried to get my camera before it was gone.


To my delight, it came closer!


I walked across the road into the harvested bean field to keep photographing it.  I saw Bob joined me.  I scolded him, but I figured he’d go back home with me too.


I went back to photographing the balloon.


Then I caught a flash of movement.  Bob did too.


The coyote didn’t even see us.


It was fascinated with watching the balloon.  How I wish I’d been thinking fast enough to get all three–the balloon, the cat, and the coyote–in my photo.


But the coyote was gone and the balloon moved on, scaring the cows across the hill.


You can’t make this up.
