We’re getting some beautiful weather here in Michigan this Summer. This morning I took the dog and went around taking some pictures from around “the yard”.



My dog sitting in the Ranger EV.  I intend to write up some impressions of this vehicle. We absolutely love it. It’s silent which lets us putter around the woods looking at wildlife but still a great utility vehicle for moving things around.  This picture was taken in the orchard.



It’s been a rough year for the bees. I lost 3 of my 5 beehives this Summer. CCD. The bees simply left. Hives full of honey (or were until the yellow jackets stole much of it before I could get to it).


This is the pond we had put in this year.  It helps reflect a bit of extra light on the solar array. There are a ton of frogs and minnows in it.



Another picture of the pond.

As much as I like summer, I love the fall.

That "backyard" is going to be gorgeous in a month or so.

Stands to reason...

Of you lament the passing of summer I'm cheering the ending of winter....

You're very blessed to have such a nice property. It's so cool to see someone that is really appreciative and enjoys the good things they have. It sounds like you're really enjoying the good things in life.

No pictures of frogs?

We've had some nice weather but it's been very short lived lol. Tops of around 27ºC here where I live (east UK). But I quite like the winter. The scenery here is absolutely fantastic when it snows.

I picked some apples in my garden yesterday and made home made apple juice. Good stuff, but it does mean that summer is bye bye. Not that we have any summer her in Norway anyways.
