In September we had a lot of things going on! Early in the month we celebrated Dad's birthday. All of us guys birthday's fell on Sunday this year, and with many responsibilities at church we often have rather abbreviated Sunday afternoons and so we actually finished celebrating Dad's day 3 weeks later when we also had another little event for me. In between those days Grandpa Potter turned 81--and he's still putting up square bale hay and cutting wood!
One Sunday afternoon the colors and light was so nice out we couldn't resist the opportunity to take a few family photos...here are a few of the best.
|A bit dark, with squinty eyed subjects, but a nice setting :)|
|Of course trying to do anything without the dog is difficult at best! ;)|
|A little different angle cuts down on the squinting!|
|Anybody want to try a different spot? :)|
|Four O'clock flowers|
|Seedum--one of my favorites|
We had pretty good year for gardening--the melons never amounted to a whole lot but we had squash, squash and more squash. Several rows were from volunteer plant and seemed be a cross of a couple of varieties from last year--delectica and acorn; quite good.
We had quite a cart-full of goodies one day when we were trying to get stuff gathered in before the frost.
|Between the trees...|
|Across the road|
|Looking towards "the farm"|
|The clouds almost look like mountains!|
