Beauty of summer

July 7, 2016

Storms that blow in and drop a half inch of rain in July are beautiful. 

These soybeans in northern Iowa are as good as they can be. I love visiting farmers this time of year.

Here's another booming crop - zucchini! I've learned to pick them early and often.

Dismount. Stuck the landing. (I can't wait for the Olympics!)

Love my lilies, especially this peachy-pink variety.

Summer means fireworks, hot nights, outdoor activities, and dog fights. This was the first of two late-night surgeries from two different dog fights in town. Everyone went home fine in the end. 

I think buzzards are beautiful. See the one emerging from the trees? These were flying over the hay field while Bob baled. They know snakes and rodents are often available for dinner during this activity.
