|Collie, Toby, in a photo op.|
It was peaceful. And in spite of the extreme heat, the day held a certain easy-going charm about it.
Before I put an end to my day, I want to share with you the beauty that caught my eye and heart.
Sit back and enjoy the slideshow, and help me out with the picture at the end. :)
|Prince, the collie, looking particularly cute with his tongue hanging out.|
|I love how the peonies are the first to bloom on the farm. They're so happy!|
|Metal Iowa corn is about all that's growing in this heat.|
|Flowers really belong anywhere.|
|Purple phlox is the sweetest and easiest addition to our yard.|
|Roses, roses, and more roses. When we first moved here, they were nearly dead.|
|Even though the chickens escaped to eat the hollyhocks, I see beauty as they brace themselves along a wagon wheel.|
|Our jolly little gnome nestled in the river birch tree. Got a name for him?|
I hope these pictures sent some extra peace your way. Before you go, please take a second to offer a suggestion as to what I should name this happy gnome.
Sending DewKist happiness always,
