Summer Time....

...and the living is easy. Fish are jumping, and the cotton is high...

And the pear tree is loaded!

I should be ashamed of myself. I should've gotten out after the fruit set and thinned. Alas. I didn't. I noticed a broken branch, so started thinning.

This was a cluster of SEVEN!

As I thinned, I could visibly see the limbs perking up a bit. They should've...look at the ground!
Hopefully the squirrels will eat these and stay out of the tree. Hmmm...ever seen a smart squirrel? They play kamakazi in the roads around here.

Sure wish there was some rain in these clouds!
My crepe myrtles are a-bloom. Here's the newest addition to the neighborhood.We finally got some rain last night...but not enough to lift the county-wide burn ban. This was sunset just after the rain. The worst of the storm was to our southwest, and the clouds are still very heavy. The lightning just lit up the jagged bolts.
