It is Texas 

It is going to be hot...REALLY hot..

This is to be expected and is the norm.

 This year the weather is a little more challenging,  our rivers and grasslands are drying up..

But there are many things that I love about summer..

My friend's donkey-Jack

My dog, Tess, constantly wanting to play frisbee

Straw boss Steve and our dog Red

Huge sunflowers in my garden

Cherokee Purple heirloom tomatoes out of my garden

A dove on the fence row

...and Heidi, one of my favorite girls..

I hope everyone is having a great summer!  Cooler temps will be here before we know it
(and I, for one, can't wait!)

(Pray for rain!)

I used several different iphone apps when making these pictures...

I am with you, I think I would like an early Fall this year. This has been the hottest and it started way too early this year.

I so pray for you all to get rain, that is scary.

I DO love your photography!!! YOU sure have an eye for it.

God bless and keep you safe.
