A few months ago Brant began helping my dad chop firewood in the woods behind my parents house so it would season in time for winter. We just barely got the pictures off my dad's camera, but I thought I'd post these gems from our lumberjack photo shoot!
We are in the midst of a hot, humid, summer-stormy week. The other evening we had a really great thunderstorm. It didn't last too long, but it left behind an awesome rainbow. I couldn't capture the whole thing on my camera, but we could in fact see the complete rainbow from our side porch! If our neighbors ever want to sell their house, I think this would make a good picture for them to show prospective buyers . . . :)
eventually the rainbow faded . . . this is all that was left for a while . .
Meanwhile, here are some pictures taken on hot sunny days:
this is coolest dang flower bud . . .
I am in love with how brilliant blue these flowers are . . .
every post has to have pictures of my daisies :)
a lone columbine blossom . . . this was my mother's day present from my dad!
This is my special snapdragon. It's just a single shoot that is randomly growing in the middle of a whole bunch of other flowers, totally separate from the rest of the snapdragons. It's a renegade!!
Lavender in the sun . . .
I was lying on my back on the patio in the sunshine, and Annie came and stood over me! She thought it was so funny!
This is where Memphis hangs out when we're outside playing on hot days. He digs himself a little hole in the dirt and then curls up in it to stay cool . . .
Annie's discovered the art of swinging around and around and around on the clothesline pole. Love it!
