Friday’s Farm Fotos

June 25, 2010

Another Friday, and just a few photos from around the farm this week.  Well, actually, I just took these pictures this morning, while doing morning chores and then walking to the mailbox with my crazy gotta-love-him dog, Toby.

The phlox is finally blooming in the flower bed on the northern end of the house.

Phlox paniculata 'David'

There are some daylilies hiding in the shadows along the steps.

By the pond, there are always dragonflies.  I like this picture because you can see how transparent the wings are.

There are also butterflies flitting around.  This morning a nice yellow and black swallowtail was sipping water off the leaves in the shadows.

And there was even a frog sitting on some pond plants in the swallow water near the bank.

No lily pad in sight I'm afraid!

And waiting on me to quit being so poky and GET OUT OF THE SUN was Toby in shade at the top of the steps.

It's too hot to stay in the sunshine!

When you’ve got a black fur coat, the sun feels really hot really fast!

And there you have it, the same old stuff here on the farm!  Hope you have a great week-end, and thanks for stopping by!
