Fall beauty

September 30, 2016

Fall skies are the most beautiful. The sunsets are baby blue and gold, while the afternoon skies are brilliant blue.

Don't try this at home. Bob is fixing a leaking roof without using a safety harness. 

Two days after his roof work, he was sipping tea on the East Coast with Caroline. We made a trip east to visit my parents.

Dad plants strawberries on black plastic in August and picks the blossoms (in this case, berries) in September so the plants put energy into foliage. Next spring will be the big berry crop.

Enjoying steamed blue crabs from the Chesapeake Bay. 

My sister, Molly, right, shows Dad, left, Uncle Doug, and Aunt Jane photos on her iPad. The tablet is a great invention for sharing photos when you are traveling.

Mom and Caroline. One of the most precious things in life is spending time with grandparents.

Back home in Iowa, our ewes enjoy another beautiful sunset.
