St. Bartholomew

No, that isn't the evil one in red jammies... that is St. Bartholomew. If you look closely he is holding his skin! I have always had some sort of fascination for this saint due to the fact he was flayed alive.
Sam discovered a swarm of bees in the woods by the pony pen today.

This one was rather unique as they were already minding their own bees wax!

The little prisoner.

A friend of mine told me just this morning that she heard that if you take a dryer sheet out with you it will keep the mosquitos away. Well, I decided to try it. I don't usually use dryer sheets but the time I had to go to the laundromat to dry some loads that got out of hand the clothing came back smelling worse than when it went in. So I keep some on hand... just in case.

So when Aragorn (the camera shy) and I went out for a walk this evening I had my dainty little sheet of cling free (remember when they used to be those cute little blue spongy rectangles?) and he brought the Off. But the days for Off are off since a dryer sheets works just as well as an insect repellent. And the nice thing about it is that they can also double as a ..... dryer sheet!
I cannot figure out how to capture the sun when it is that lovely red ball. But this is pretty enough.

Just getting bigger by the day.

Never give your husband the camera. He just might use it. And he did, about 1/2 dozen times. One picture will suffice.

This poor guy is done for.

I just thought this was pretty is all. I know, it is a pumpkin but the shade of orange was lovely.

Another biggie but this one doesn't look as big because it is a whole lot longer.

Watermelons always look the same. The biggest one (that is recorded) is "only" about 200 pounds. Not sure what this one is.


This squash is sooooo gnarly and ugly but it is really big, he just may make us proud.
