Summer Days

I have no special reason to post this photo today. I simply like this view--it's the first non-woods view I see as I'm driving off the mountain. I've posted the same view in early spring when it was covered by a dusting of snow. So, since it's mid-summer now I thoughtI'd post a summer version of it.

It's hot here, and consequently not much is going on. The critters spend about 23.5 hours a day sleeping and no more than 30 minutes doing other things.

I like this time of year at Roundtop. No one is around, and it's like living on an estate--one that I don't have to pay taxes on or mow or maintain. I get to wander all over and don't have to worry about running into other people. Even the wild animals usually ignore me--they're not stressed by the presence of anyone else or too much extraneous activity so they're pretty calm. It makes watching them even more interesting.

I'm glad you made it through the rains, now if you can stand the heat! Our dogs just lie around waiting for the cooldown.

Peggy,

Yes, the heat is not fun. I don't have air conditioning--usually I don't need it. But there's always a few days or a week each summer that makes me wish I had it!
