Summer Summary


I'm still kickin'.  Well, maybe not kickin' exactly, but getting by.

Here is the extent of summer action around the place.
(I did spare you from photos of grass mowing and all the things that have bit the dust here in the last three months.  Oh, and all the appointments, phone calls, forms, signature guarantees, etc., which one has to deal with following a death.  So complicated.
Hopefully, I am about done with all that bother.


Some patriotic harvest, thanks to a volunteer little white pumpkin/squash.



Wheat field with some color.




Green wheat . . . 




Golden wheat . . . 


Rain . . . 



A visit to a friend's beautiful shady garden oasis. . . 





Some bathers . . .





Some eaters . . . 





Some bunnies . . . lots of bunnies . . . 





A couple of hunters . . . .  one stayed close enough to get a few shots - with the camera, of course.





Icky batches of insects all over the crape myrtles. . . 





And a great 50th birthday party for a good friend.



Hope everyone had a good summer.

Wonderful photos. I have missed you and your photos...I have kept saying prayers for you to find ease with everything. I know it has been a change.

Wonderful photos and I LOVE that Cardinal!!!!!!!!!

This looks so much like summer - a good summer. Each of your photos is delightful, even the icky insects. My favorite are definitely those of the cardinal in the bird bath - it's so much fun to watch them! We don't have cardinals here, so I enjoy seeing them on other people's blogs. Let's hope that fall will be just as pleasant as summer obviously has been for you so far.

Hey Amy! It's wonderful to see you again. You have been fervently in my prayers. I could just bask in these images, especially the one of the sunrise/sunset over the wheat field. Wow. It's amazingly beautiful! And all the rest are lovely, too. Except maybe those bugs. ;) Ew. What kind are they? We have several Crepe Myrtles and have never seen anything like them around here. Take care, my friend.

Enjoyed all the photos - except for the bugs. :)
Good to see you posting again.

I was glad to see your post and to know that you're conquering all those tasks that were put before you. One thing hasn't changed and that's your ability to wield wonders with your camera!

I have thought of you so often, Amy. Not like it's not difficult enough to lose someone you love dearly, but then all the paperwork and appointments following. You're a strong woman. I'm glad to see you posting your gorgeous photos again. What's that blue and orange bird?

I'm glad to find your new post..I don't know why it didn't show up on my list. I've thought about you and wondered if you were doing ok.
Great shots, today. Have a safe holiday weekend!

Amy,
I was ready to sign up and follow your artistic eye within the first few photographs. The wheat photographs are shown from such a unique position that one can see the stalks like a modern contemporary painting. You've got a great eye for design and telling a story.
