Scenes from the summer

Labor Day weekend always marks the unofficial start of Fall for me.
I'm ready for some cooler weather, but I will miss the summer's flowers and colors...



...the spectacular sunrises...





...and the rainbows – goodness, there were so many rainbows this year.



And somewhere over the rainbow I always find my little pot of gold.

  1. Outstanding pictures, as always!

    I am looking forward to fall also, but only because our summer has been unusually HOT ... as of right now, and with more to come, 53 days this summer of 90 or above!

    Love your September header.

  2. Gorgeous photos this morning!

    I, too, feel this is the start of Fall now. I love the cooler weather, but in WI I know winter will be lurking in the not so distant future. The horses have started to shed their summer coats already. :(

    Beautiful photos as usual Linda. I am waiting for fall and cooler temps. The trees are starting to turn here and have been for about 10 days. Our horses are putting on the winter coats so they know summer is over.

    Thanks for those beautiful pictures. I love starting my day off w/your blog. I'm excited that summer's almost gone too. I just can't handle the heat like I used to. These days I have to stay in the water if I'm outside...How are you enjoying those fresh eggs? Did you know you can freeze them? I just read that yesterday. Who'da thunk?

  13. I think you have a whole different calendar working here. Maybe a "Beautiful New Mexico" calendar?

  14. Beautiful photos, Carson. How many eggs do you collect per week now? Are all the girls doing their job?
    I'm now buying my eggs from a local farmer and I noticed a wonderful difference in the taste of fresh eggs.
    Enjoy your weekend and I will too.
    Best always, Sandra

  15. Nancy, I had no idea that eggs could be frozen. Must go google...

    Sandra, the girls are laying machines. Once they found their groove (it took a couple of weeks) each of them has given me an egg a day...21 eggs a week! Every morning between 10 am and noon, they do their thing, and when I go out to do lunchtime chores, I find all three eggs in the same nesting box. I love my chickens.

  19. You sure have a lot of colors you can't find here in Kansas and Missouri. Gorgeous. Btw, I have a friend who is chicken crazy and we just went to a chicken ranch last week to pick up some more chickens...because these chickens lay chocolate colored eggs. They really do look like dark chocolate!

  21. it is funny, how we wish away our lies without even thinking about it. I look forward to fall too, but will miss my roses and lavender. I am, however, ready for some cool weather.

  25. Have you noticed how dark yellow the yolks are and how they "stand up" in the fryin' pan?

  26. I held a chicken for the first time in my life today! I visited a friend's farm that had 4 chickens and they were soooo social and excited to visit with us. Two of them let me pick them up! They were laying hens as well and followed us EVERYWHERE we went.
