summer scenes

Summer is in full swing.

...and the fox kit is growing bigger ...and bolder. It visits each morning and evening. Occasionally, we let the chickens out in the middle of the day, and so far, there are no fatalities.

The Daylilies are in their prime now. I like to watch them open and close. There is a small patch just outside my window...

and the ones that Catena sent to me are blooming too. These are 3 years old already.

This summer seems to be especially good for the blueberries. I netted the bushes a few weeks ago. These bushes are probably over 20 years old. They came from my parents husband and I transplanted when my mother moved. They are so full of berries that the branches are bending down.

The red raspberries are starting to come too...from a patch we started about 4 years ago. The patch is really starting to produce. Fresh berries for dessert are a real treat...doubtful there will be any leftover to jam with.

I've been spinning for the Tour de can view my results on Ravelry, in my stash pages.

I finally decided to clear this spindle.

It is nearly two years ago that this was spun...I still don't know what I will make with it..but I wound off onto a storage bobbin. many memories....

Such beautiful yarn. The spindles themselves are beautiful too. That little fox is going to give you trouble. I wish one was here to eat the squirrels that tear up my plantings. Loved reading your Pheno post too. Try to stay cool.

Just looked at your Ravelry page, I'm fascinated by the mileage you are walking to spin the yarn, this is interesting.

Your photos are terrific. Love the fox photos. We never see them here, but heard the coyotes last nite. Blueberries and raspberries were delicious!

Yum - the yarn and the fruit. Definitely signs of summer.
