Sweet Summertime, A Season in Photographs

by Wendy

Winds roar whipping whirling dervishes against panes as we cozy up on the homestead in blizzard conditions.  Somewhere in the distance I can hear the barn door banging in the wind, as treetops bend.  ‘Tis the season for homemade afghans cocooning, woolen socks and mittens for toasty toes and fingers.  All are shored up tight, riding out the winter weather.  Having a little longing in my soul for some sunshine, I decided to work with some pics from last summer’s homestead goings-on.  So here it is, sweet summertime on the homestead!

This is what happens when you bring four, oh wait, five creative man-minds together on the homestead waiting for the meat to smoke…

THE TOWER

I believe in the end it was close to 20 ft. high!  They used a sixteen foot ladder, and went as high as they could reach, my oldest son is 6’2″!!!!

WOW!!!
