For the love of summer

Yes, I doooo love summer and all that it entails.  Long days, warm nights, sunshine, everything!!  So, for once I don't have a lot to say and thought I'd just post a bunch of pictures taken over the last month of so.  Our summer so far...

Homemade strawberry jam...YUM!!!
 Swimming in the lake...................


 Fishin' - even if it is just for pretend!!


Bathing and spending time with the horses just because you love them!!!  This is my grandson David and our beautiful little mare "Kadie".  She loves attention...don't most girls??


"Ladde"  after just having his first bath of the summer and showing off those spots that otherwise go un-noticed unless he's all wet.  I think he's beautiful...er, I mean handsome!!


 Ya just gotta admire a gorgeous horsey butt!!  This is Harley, doing what Harley loves best...


Herd shot...with the head herdmeister - "Shad"


Naps with an old friend - what's not to love about that!!??


My berry patch!!  This is the first year I've got berries, and they're a little out of control...like so many other things in my garden.  But those berries are delicious!!!


A super weekend breakfast made especially tasty with freshly homemade raspberry topping with berries just picked my my berry patch!!!  Hmmmmm...



My gorgeous wild rose hedge that keeps growing bigger and better with each summer...I love it!!



Summer projects that are enjoyed for years to come...
Thank you honey!!



Making new friends...


And lastly, but forever at the tops of my loves list...another shot of Ladde feeling especially dashing after his bath.  He knows he's gorgeous!!  And, there's my beloved hubby trying to hide behind the Laddmonster!!  Sorry, not a chance!!  :)










Hope you're all enjoying your summer.  We're off to Costco to buy some ribs and chicken breasts for a BBQ this weekend at our house with the family and a few friends.  I'm gonna make a killer (I hope) boysenberry cobbler with some of the berries that I picked last night.  Hmmm, served with homemade whipped cream/mascarpone cheese topping...oh my!!!  Hope everybody's weekend is fun, relaxing and oh-so-tasty too!!!!

What beautiful pictures. We are having a wonderful crop of raspberries too. They are so sweet. Have been on Sage three times. Meant to today but things happen. Like headaches. Glad you are having a good summer.
