Summertime . . . and the Living is Easy
To paraphrase George Gershwin
And the livin' is easy
Goats are jumpin'
And the garden is high
Take a stroll with me around Green Pastures Farm and enjoy the summer sights . . .
While Spring pinks and purples still linger, yellows, reds, and oranges add to the riot of summer garden color.
The dye garden has been plentiful. Above, in the header, is Cosmos sulphureus which blooms in yellows, oranges, and reds. (I'm pretty proud of catching the beautiful butterfly in the shot!). Also collecting for the dye pot . . .black walnut, marigold, hibiscus . . .
And what about the animals? Jenny the Mini Donkey turned four years old last week.
The spring babies are growing.
Hey! What's everybody looking at?
Why, it's a baby boy born last Saturday to our little doeling, Sally May.
Want to see his newborn video?
Although Daisy May is now a Grandma, she's not all that excited . . . she herself is very much pregnant and still waiting in the heat of a South Carolina July!
So, I think we should all take a hint from Willie and take it easy in the shade . . .
. . . and I would add a glass of lemonade or a cold beer in a frosty glass! Ahhhhhh . . . summertime!
