Our Bartlett Pear tree is giving
us a big harvest this year...
We collect a box full each morning...
2 canner loads to process each day...
14 jars of pears a day.
We will enjoy these over the winter months.
Our Gravenstein Apple tree has also kept us busy:
3 pies came out of the oven today.
I try and stitch whenever I get the chance:
I have been working on this curved piece
sunflower quilt this summer.
I have been finishing up tote bags
from all of the messy painted canvas
that was painted earlier in the year.
We made time this summer to attend the
Oregon State Fair:
The 6 horse hitch is always a favorite of ours!
These gentle giants are always a treat to see.
We also made time to visit our son and
raft the Boise river with him:
We took his raft...
he paddled his kayak.
Remember these little guys?
These were the two little orphan calves
we fed on bottles last summer...
This is the calf we brought home from the dairy
the day he was born.....OMG how cute!
Here are the orphan calves today:
They are nearly 18 months old...
You never see one....without the other.
We put the bulls in with the cows last May:
This is my favorite Shorthorn Bull.....Fernando.
The bulls are back to being a bachelor herd.
We are still enjoying our summer flowers:

As you can see in this photo, out the back door...
it is super dry here in Western Oregon.
Sparky the rooster and his hens
are wishing you the best of the summer's end.
