We are happy to share our back yard with this little fellow. I do not mind putting the dogs into a sit-stay inside, then going out to let Chip know that we are coming and therefore ensure Chip is safe before letting the hounds out. It is the right thing to do.
Every dog has at least one quirk. I vacuumed the house, then took the floor mats outside and mopped the kitchen floor. Fitzi dislikes smooth floors and refused to cross the kitchen until Faye returned from running errands.
This Red-winged Blackbird closely watched me to ensure I did not approach too closely.
On a hazy and very hot morning, winter wheat awaits the combine.
I stopped this morning to take a few photos. This one best captured the feel of the morn – very hot (26C), very humid, very still. A day and a landscape waiting for relief, for release, from the unusually long hot spell we have endured for almost a week.
Sometimes, the best way to while away a summer afternoon is to read a good book.
