It has been the kind of week where even trying to take time this afternoon to pull together this post benefits from some dumb luck. It is now 5 pm, and I think I'll make it this time....
Here are photos from throughout the week:
|This year's hay fields seem particularly beautiful. Some are already cut, but this one is not - yet.|
The milkweed starts again to be showy, and, to me, continues to be fascinating!
Our son graciously brought his daughter here, from the west, for her summer visit - wonderful to see them both! Luckily we have fiber optic wi-fi so that even from here he can do what needs to be done.
Our grandaughter is staying for a whole week, though, on her own!
We've seen a deer along our driveway, and admired the neighbor's well-tended garden,

Then, after a few days, our daughter and her daughter came from the east, also for a week, which makes for a cousin overlap! This is "first time" wonderful.
We have been swimming in our pond, watching a lot of hummingbird activity on our deck,
AND yesterday all five of us here were on and in the Kentucky River, during a gathering in celebration of a wonderful man who died this spring, at age 100. He would have loved the day honoring him.
What a full and fine week. The last photo, below, is of one of the great-grandchildren from yesterday. And all of us need to remember, as his great-grandfather would say: "be particular."
