On Friday night I went out to eat with Jesse's mom and her husband. When I got home is was a beautiful night out and I just wasn't ready to go to bed yet. I decided to bring my camera on a little walk with me instead :) Warning: Photo heavy post!
One of the best parts of our yard is my brother's memorial tree. This is the sign a designed last year after he passed. It's a little beat up and a little tattered, but isn't that kind of how life goes sometimes.
This little bug agreed that this is the best part of the yard. He's hanging out on some new growth on the roses that surround the tree.
Tomatoes...can't wait for BLTs!
As I was knelt down taking a picture of the bug above, I saw this full dandelion. I realize these might be weeds, but they sure are pretty. And I'm actually half impressed with the macro on my cell phone! (click to enlarge)
It's hard to tell from this picture. But the baby calf we brought home over a year ago has gotten quite large. He has free range of the pasture now.
Thought this was a pretty pic of one of his fence posts :)
And another "weed" photo. Hey, when you don't have time to plant flowers, you appreciate the wild ones :)
It had been so long since I'd walked around our yard (about 8 acres) that I'd forgotten we had a second hydrant. I thought it looked pretty hanging out in the tall grass.
Our house sits at the end of a gravel road that turns to dirt at the other side of our lower drive.
I sure love Iowa sunsets :)
And my walk lasted long enough that the sun was setting...and the moon was out too!
When I got back from my walk, Keystone was patiently waiting for some lovin'. Sitting on the patio cuddling with a kitty...what could be better :)
