Comet, Pearl, and Chloe

The sky during a stormy day.

At dusk, the mist rolls in.

The mist is covering the grasses outside our gate.

 Grant, my brother, does not need to keep frogs in an aquarium anymore. Frogs are numerous in the country side and in our pond.

I entered Pearl in a cutest canine contest. Here is the link if you'd like to vote. Voting starts October 31st. Just look for a Bernese Mountain Dog. You'll find her.

October first: The wind, the leaves, and the applesauce

Today I flung myself out of bed and snapped pictures left and right. The day was gorgeous. Patterns of wind, clouds, and sun worked their way through the morning. Ten hawks decided to enjoy the outdoor air as well. High above, they circled and finally disappeared. As soon as the soaring hawks left, the rain came in great gusts and the rest of the day was filled with the whims of wetness. But before that happened, I was able to take pictures of our land on October 1st, 2016. Always to remember, never to forget.



 If you'll peer at the top right picture, you will find a snake. Ivanhoe appears to be staring at it with marked interest. It is on the right hand side.

Ivanhoe and Chloe like to show their might. They both have very bad tempers and like to compete with each other. Ivanhoe was crying after I took this picture of Chloe so I obliged him. Here are pictures of both Chloe AND Ivanhoe.
And then the rain. While it rained...............

We made applesauce! Again!

Making applesauce, dried pears and dried prunes...all at the same time!
Have a glorious autumn day!
