July 2017 – week 27

Welcome back to this year’s photo-a-day journey. I’m sharing little bits of my daily life & travels.

Here we are, officially into the second half of the year!  The weather is finally summer-time weather…hot, humid, & with a generous sprinkling of thunderstorms. 

Now onto this week’s photos:

July 2 – oh, what a beautiful morning; first day of a summer long weekend starting out perfectly.

July 4 – hatchlings; I love watching Mama Robin feeding her young … though at the time of writing this post, they have already flown the nest!

July 5 – knitting; found this wonderful metal sculpture at The Shed at Chetwyn Farms; a local alpaca farm.  The have the cutest alpacas, lots of wool, and alpaca products, like hats, mittens, blankets, etc.  Make sure to stop by when you come to ‘the County’.
