4th of July

It really doesn't seem possible that we have already past the 4th of July. Summer is moving much to fast!
I hope everyone had a great holiday and got in some fun! 

We checked the corn fields last week. 
Definitely reached, and passed "Knee high by 4th of July."
Truckin' Man was happy.

While checking the corn, I caught this gorgeous sunset.

Roofing part of the porch has been Truckin' Man's project over the holiday. Not a huge project, but when you have two days a week to take care of all house and farm needs, little projects are a big deal.
I don't do ladders or heights, so I am in charge of beverages. 

We took some time away on Sunday to go see my bestie, in a little river town, on the Mississippi. 

Flowers are getting to their peak, and are so pretty!

Black Raspberries are ready for me to nibble on when I walk by. I love them so much... My favorite berry! 
The locals here call them "Black caps". What do you call them?

  1. This is a nice trip. Great pictures. I'd love it if you linked this to What'd You Do This Weekend? at Tumbleweed Contessa.

    I can't believe 4th of July is over either. I can't believe half the year has passed. Time never went so fast when I was young. :-)

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  2. Thanks for coming over to What'd You Do This Weekend? I think you did a great job of cataloging your trip. We should all do that. My family takes great pictures of food and flowers, but we skip each other when we are all together.

  3. I agree with you, Summer is flying by too quickly! I wish there was a stop button! Your pics are beautiful and those blackberries? Something to indeed celebrate! Love that!
