Late Summer Comes to the Farm

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.

Genesis 8:22

Summer is almost over and soon the leaves will fall, the garden will suffer frost, and the super-heated days will be forgotten. We all love summer, but there are things to relish in every season God gives us.img_6253-1

A zinnia lives out its days in an old bottle setting in the light on the kitchen windowsill.


Heirloom tomatoes are wonderful colors. Sliced on a platter for the supper table they are delicious.


Ripened on the vine there may not be any better flavor in summer.


The cat finds a favorite spot in a planter full of fern. She thinks she is camouflaged.


Goldfinches play and feast at the feeders.


Tomatoes in red rows are put up for winter soups and sauces.


The swimming pools gets a workout.


Applesauce gets canned for winter.


Everywhere something is growing even from the hard places.


The skies are blue.


The horses graze the plentiful grass. Soon they will eat hay.


Morning glories run the garden fence and wildflowers brighten the meadows.


Cows stay in the shade and make lots of trips to the water trough.


Joe the turtle comes to visit.


Kittens grow into mousers.


Sunflowers tower and begin to dry.


The horses come to be petted.


The sunflowers wave in the wind beside the road.

Summer is leaving town and we must all wave goodbye.
