My Farm in Late August

It’s been a challenging summer weather-wise.  It was a very hot spring, which caused plants to grow early and fast.  Nearly everything was a good two weeks ahead of schedule.  We also had very little rain when rain was much needed.  And, to top it all off, there was that twister in late July, causing tremendous damage to many, many stately trees.  Despite all of this, my grounds crew continues to work hard at making the farm a beautiful and productive place.  Enjoy these photos taken yesterday.
