Doo, doo, doo, lookin’ out my back door

We’ve had so much rain lately that everything is so beautiful, green and lush.  The crops are doing really well and ahead of schedule. 

Here’s a few views out my back door.  IMG_3764

If you look across the cornfield to the farm with the silos…you can see the farm I was raised on.IMG_3767

I’ve always had trouble getting things to grow on my deck.  Too much sun and too much wind, but these sun coleus have done very well so far.  I love the different shades of green, especially the neon green of the sweet potato vine. IMG_3760

One night last week we stepped out on the deck about ten-o-clock and the moon was just beautiful peeking out from behind the clouds.   Quiet(no coyotes howling that night) summer nights are great, aren’t they?


  1. We finally got a little rain here, so things are green again. How did the wheat harvest go up there?

  2. Beautiful pictures. You can see for miles across the fields... pretty!
    until next time... nel

  3. So pretty! Everything is ahead here in New England~my yard puts on a show for the fourth of July but we have been enjoying it for two weeks now!!

  4. You have such an amazing view! That must be so wonderful to wake up to each day. :)

  5. I love your view! How wonderful to live to close to where you grew up. Great shot of the moon. Have a wonderful weekend celebrating the 4th. Blessings, SusanD

  6. I love your pictures! I would love to sit out in your yard and just enjoy the view!

    Could you send us some your rain? Our rain deficit is over 6.5 inches.

  7. I love that song...we've had to much rain here in Texas lately...sun is shining to do...I'm doing my happy dance...
