“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Strawberry Shortcake....

Way too hot for me.
10 days of this will drive me nuts.

 Gary started pulling out the garlic today.
Looking very good.

 We also checked out the potatoes.
 They are still very small.
 I am going to try very hard to pick veggies at the right time
this season.  The yellow squash was just right today.

 Made Gary a big batch of rhubarb sauce.

 I love the light from the afternoon sun, but it really heats up the house.
 At 7pm we arrived at Sandy Beach to have dessert with Carol and Topper.
 Within minutes I had my feet in the water.

 The strawberry shortcake was delicious.

Home before dark and it was still 84 degrees.
These poor pups.
Keeping them cool will be a challenge.
May have to get out their swimming pool tomorrow.

Night all.

Elliott is Coming to Skoog Farm

 Finished the big pasture.
It looks like we are going to have 10 days in the 90s.  Too hot for me to be out there mowing.

The front paddock is finally starting to fill in with grass.

She Sings practiced today.
Sat about 15 feet apart and serenaded the neighborhood.
We are learning some new songs
and making up harmonies is going to take some time.

At 4:30 Karen and I drove out to Forrestel Farm to look at Elliott.
He needs a home.
 His owner, Grace, is going to college and he spent the last year there
as a camp horse.

He's a very good boy and will be coming here on Sunday.
He and Karen will make a good team.

 He knows how to do three tricks!

Lights out.

Night all.
