It was a perfect morning to be in town. The county art show, which had been on hiatus for some years, was on the courthouse lawn, the Red Hat Ladies were in town, grandchildren and their parents were visiting, and the sun was shining. Here are a few photos from this morning:
Benson gets visited by the Red Hat Ladies. He is such a funny dog--even with all the windows down, he would not jump out of Jennifer's Jeep. But he liked the ladies visiting!
And he liked resting on the courthouse lawn with Kate. The breeze was soft and cool early in the day and as Jon said, it would have been easy to stay under the trees and people watch all day.
More babies: Back at home, the wren eggs in the basket by the front door had hatched. The little ones have big mouths and can certainly raise a ruckus if they think their mother and father aren't being attentive enough.
We picked up a load of mulch and some woven wire fencing for the chicken yard, but the afternoon got too hot to do much outside work. It's still about 85 degrees and I am not acclimated to such heat yet. So I watered the greenhouse, tidied up the porch and worked on my ballad workshop for next weekend.
Now, to get back outside and enjoy the evening on the deck. Tomorrow we'll need an early start to beat the heat; a high of 92 --92!--is predicted. Yuck. Thursday morning it was below freezing just before dawn, and Wednesday morning we had snow flurries.
