Daily Farm Photo 8/21/06: Dreaming Up a Rainstorm


Our parched farm greedily soaked up an inch of much needed rain over the weekend. It's still thirsty.

  2. Beautiful photographs as always. As an artist, each one inspires me to sketch or draw it (don't worry, I don't use without asking). But perhaps you would grant me permission to use a photo of Cary to practice on? Your choice of course.

    And I'm curious as to what type of camera that you use. Your photos are so crisp and clear and your timing impecable when it comes to catching the right moment with animals.

  4. No Doubt! We're having a drought over here in Ohio..Our lawns are beginning to look like Arizona landscaping! My poor Hastas are taking a beating, even though I've moved them to a more shady spot :(

  5. I recently read that a group of women in Nepal (?) stripped naked and plowed their fields in a ritual to make it rain. Are we that desperate yet?

  6. Ah, we got a pretty good rain in KC but ground still shows cracks. Man, we are still so far behind; haven't had to mow in weeks. Lovely nature photo, as always!

  7. Go Farmgirl Susan! My mom is on gather.com and clued me in on you being on the homepage tonight...

    Tomato Pesto Pie looking even more savory!

  8. We have had company. I've enjoyed them, but also missed catching up with the country life.

    Texas remains hot. I'm not sure of the official high today, but the computer said that it was 111 degrees with the heat index this afternoon. It's even hard to breath. Please enjoy that rain enough for all of us!

  12. I'm so glad you got more rain. Here in Washington state we've had the least rain on record ever for summer -- 0.07" all summer (so far). Fortunately we don't get baked like most of the rest of the country, but still . . . .
