More First Cutting Today...

 Not quite as hot as it was yesterday, but my two girls still wanted to stay in the run-in....
while Moon went out for some grass.
 Ted S. brought over 100 bales of hay at 8:30, so I think we are set until the 2nd cutting is available.

At 9 Lorrie and Moon did some ground work with Elizabeth.

 I got in a little mowing before class started at 10:30

Madonna took this photograph with her phone and is going to turn it into a colored pencil drawing.  I just love the composition and color.

Tina did this pastel drawing some time ago.  Rediscovered it today while we were looking for a missing project.  Sweet!

 Sandy is starting a new drawing.

 After class we went out to the garden and everyone picked spinach.
 Ate lunch and continued mowing.  Way out back there are a couple of huge old wild cherry trees.  I stood on the lawn tractor so I could reach some.  Cherries are my weakness.

 Evening chores a little after 5.

 Dinner was leftovers from last night and it tasted just great the second time around.
Night all.


  1. Your own cherries, what a bonus. And the shadows, lovely. Cheers from Jean.

  2. I think I am in love with your horse Moon. New header is lovely. Sounds like a busy day with lots of hay! I wish you lived over the hill from me, I would join your classes.

  3. Funny, as soon as I saw the picture of the cherries my saliva started running; my mind envisioned the tartness of the wild cherries!

  4. Cherries are my favorite fruit as well. Not sure about you standing on the tractor to reach them, though. Be careful!

  5. Oh I recognize the Highland cattle shot from Hidden Valley:) it looks wonderful.
    I cannot believe you have hay off we have not started it rains and rains every time we think about it. I am happy you have yours off. I bet it smells wonderful. B

  6. Your spinach is so big and wonderful looking! I need to quit picking mine at the baby stage.

  7. Beautiful post, Lori! I love that drawing you found. And leftovers always seem to be yummy. :)

  8. That last shot of the lawn is beautiful. Cherries... what a lucky lady you are. I can't imagine...
