Summer Sunset

On the last day of summer 2010, after the first rain in two weeks, we drove to Union Hall to check the farms. The hay had been finished just days earlier. The road into the old Mattox place looked like this in the setting sun: 

The hay on the Brown Place hasn't yet been moved. Bales lay like toppled monoliths.

The pear tree I planted long ago still bears fruit. 

The end of summer glowed pink.

Great looking sky in that last shot! The only fruit tree we have is a tiny apple tree that the deer eat everything off of. We have yet to see an apple on it.

Glad you got some rain. We still haven't gotten any - maybe next week.
Love the pink skies.
