Hey, you guys! I was browsing back in Lightroom and discovered that I actually have a good amount of pictures that I never posted, all the way up to nearly a year ago. So I thought I’d do an archive photo dump! Some of these are from a photography challenge I nearly finished and others are just random.
Y’all, summer is going by WAY. TOO. FAST. I can’t handle it. Why did summer have to be so short? For us, it’s been a busy season, and a wet season. Unfortunately, it’s rained just a little TOO much. But yet, we still enjoy a bounty of good food – fruit from our orchard, apples and peaches, and veggies from the garden. Beets, onions, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, and watermelon.
Much is growing on the farm! I love watching all the plants from seedlings and transplants to full-fledged fruit. This year we have so many veggies! Tomatoes, summer squash and zucchini, cabbages, broccoli, onions, watermelons, honeydew, cantaloupe, potatoes, blueberries and cucumbers to name most of them.
Back in April, our apple trees were blooming! The whole orchard was white and pink and oh it was lovely. Unfortunately, our trees are rather small, but I can imagine the effect in ten years or so. April and May are my favorite spring months because everything is blooming and budding and it’s oh so very beautiful!
For a while, I’ve been very interested in history and farming. Granted, I live on a farm, so let’s say I’ve had plenty of encouragement for that interest, but I’ve found both fields extremely fascinating and enjoyable. When my Granddaddy decided to visit his sister, my Aunt Susan, in TN last month, I asked if I could join him and go see the farm that he grew up on in the sixties.
