to everything there is a season

There's a shift in the air here.  School starting.  Slightly cooler temps.  Football around the corner.  And bow season opening next week.  

The tractor has been brought back to harrow a fall garden.  Spring chicks, now hens, laying in earnest.  Pears ripening.  The first spider lilies opening their swirling coral petals. 

I'm reflecting and resorting.  Still working through the grief of a death & celebrating the birth of a new niece just last night:  Carrie, Greg, & Sam welcomed Willa Rose.  


Willa

Levi is an avid seed saver.  He loves to sort & label.

Her first scriblings.

Levi's eye to detail makes him a great helper with the laundry.  Kitchen linens folded to perfection.

This was the first vehicle we bought - in 2000 right after we got married.  It's a 1991 Toyota pickup.  We sold it a few weeks ago & both hated to see it go.  The fella that bought it rode his Harley over to pick it up.  Here Joe helps him load the bike in back for the ride home.  It was a good ending.

Fresh picked pears.  Some made their way into the batch of raspberry pear jam today.
