farewell, summer

It's been rainy, grey, and very fall-ish around here for the past several weeks.  While I'm definitely, totally ready for autumn, I thought I'd share these sweet summer photos of Ivy and Hank as a farewell to summer.

These are from the middle of May when we had some rather warm weather and chronicle Ivy's first popsicle experience. *smile*





Goodness how she has grown!  And she has a lot more hair now. *grin*

What are your favorite memories from this summer? I want to know!

  2. These are such precious photos, I love the last one especially! Her cheeks are just too perfect. :) Favorite memory? I'm not sure, probably karate camp and the trip to Glacier.

  3. So glad to see you post! I've never commented before but want you to know your posts are anticipated :). I live in the Los Angeles area so I feel like I'm perennially in Summer (grew up on a farm in Chicago area so LA has taken some getting used to...). My husband and I found out this summer we are expecting our first baby and I have to say that was the brightest moment for me (especially with all the morning sickness that followed...). Enjoy some Autumn weather for me!

    1. I'm so glad you commented Becca, and that you look forward to my blog posts! The first 10 years of my life were spent in San Clemente, CA, so I totally get that. Love having 4 seasons here so much! Oh, congratulations!! That is so exciting!! Well, except the morning sickness...that's just yuck. I will do that!

  4. Hi Tasha from the windy hills of Wales! It is definitely autumn here with leaves beginning to turn. Wool and lamb are huge business endeavors here in these rocky hills. With all the rain here, the grass is lush and thickens sheep are literally grazing everywhere . I've been thinking of you all day while I look as these sheep knowing how much you love raising them. Oddly enough , many do not have their tails docked for some reason. Have you found your next farm yet for a move?

    These Popsicle photos of Hank and Ivy are very sweet! Cherrio, my Sheherdess friend!!

    1. Sounds like a wonderful visit! I just finished reading a book about sheep farming in the Lake District of England. They would leave some of the tails long for better weather proofing for their fell flocks. Maybe the same reason for the long tails you've seen?
      No, not yet. Well, we found a place we'd really like to buy, but we can't until we sell our place. So, we will have to wait. Since winter is coming on, we're going to try selling again in the spring, probably around May.

  5. Such cute photos of Ivy! I was able to do some fun things this summer: photoshoots with a friend, seeing The Piano Guys in concert, going camping, and swing dancing. I'm really glad fall is here though, as it's my favorite time of year! Hoping to go out and take some fall photos soon.

  6. I just love her! And I'm a little jealous of your fall-ish weather :) Still pretty warm here.

    1. I understand your jealousy.;) Sure am enjoying the cooler weather, although it has warmed up again a bit. Not for long, I think.
