From the back yard
The heat wave dissipated enough for me to get outdoors with the camera late yesterday afternoon and these are a few of the shots I got.
Puttin’ Up Hay
That’s what it’s called around here. Farmers, especially livestock owners have been worried by the way the heat wave has effected hay production. The more hay they can produce this summer, the less they’ll have to buy and the lower the price will be come winter. These bales will be left out to dry for a couple of weeks before they’re hauled off to the hay barn.

These clouds were the leading edge of the cold front that moved in overnight.
We’ve had scattered showers today, heavy at times, and not a moment too soon. Showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast for most of this week and we’re thankful for that. I may have to mow our lawn this month after all! The last time I mowed was June 27th.
