Summer staycation.

I’m not sure how to label the next two months.  Much of the time will be filled with activities other than rug hooking.  But in the middle of it all, I’ll be going to Rug Hooking Week at Sauder Village.  I’ll call that an “oasis” of rug hooking.  More on that in August.

In the meantime, I’ll be sharing photos of things around Crow's Foot Farm.  There are always perennials and animals and all things green and beautiful.  Summer isn’t my favorite season, but I do appreciate many aspects of it. 

I hope you love summer and that yours is happening just as you like it.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the hustle and bustle of life all around!

I love red hot pokers. We seem to have two varieties that bloom at different times.

Another of my favorite perennials is Russian sage. It’s beautiful to look at and it smells so good! The big fat bees love it, too.

We used to have a large area of purple coneflowers, but the heliopsis has taken over.

The tomato plants weren’t put in until late, so we are anxiously awaiting our first tomatoes. These are cherry tomatoes.
