In the air...

Last weekend, with the cooler weather and the smell of fall in the air, Olive & I took a walk back to the flower field to check on the flowers & count how many round bales of hay a local farmer was able to get from our land.  When he cut this past spring, he baled added up to an extra $200 for us!...for doing nothing!  This entirely different story!  Olive & I counted 3 bales...$45.  Eesh...that in itself tells you how dry this summer has been!   

 Olive wasn't too sure about these big creatures hanging out on her land.

I'm undecied on what this pretty piece of fluff is from.  At first glance, it looked like a bunny lost a tuft of fur, but the closer I looked, it looks like it could be something from a plant?  Not sure, but it sure is pretty & peaceful.

 The helenium that we planted as plugs over the 4th of July are just beginning to bloom!  They'll be beautiful next season when they're able to reach their full height!

Our best buddy, Olive...she *loves* being able to walk back to the flowers to run & sniff & play fetch!

Now, Labor Day Weekend is here!  We'll be doing rain dances, hopefully getting a lot of plants in the ground & finishing up the chicken coop! 
Have a great weekend, friends!
