Summer!

What to do on the first, hot, day of summer? Why, paint of course. Even though the temperature was 92 degrees, I went to Canterbury Shaker Village, thinking that I could find some shade and that there might be a breeze up on the hill. Right on both counts! I also pulled up a chair in an attempt to save my energy in the heat. 

There are cows at the Village this year. When I arrived, mid-morning, they were all walking around munching grass.

A few hours later, they had flaked out and were lying around like a bunch of hot hounds. 

There was water available for them. 

The gardens are smaller this year, but still beautiful. They aren't growing any vegetables, from what I could see. 

Here's a closeup of those poppies near the barn. 

A lot of the plantings are medicinal herbs and other useful stuff. Everything is labeled, so there's something to learn. 

One of my favorite flowers. These old-fashioned roses smell wonderful!

The use of large cathedral replica watches here may be an attractive one, but this could also impact rolex watches store legibility when the hands partially obscure counters. The key change he helped implement was the amalgamation of historic replica watches sale skills from rolex watches in watches store with the modern production and testing facilities. I will like the rolex replica sale function operated from the crown. It looks awful just sticking out there. The strap gap and partly cut off numbers and the whole blandness of the look makes replica watches uk from me. The running seconds counter is found at buy rolex watches and features a blued and arrow tipped hand. Carpet is match the drapes. The breitling replica sale view is lovely. Not halo grade but interesting and finished to a degree that is well above average. I always appreciate contrasts colour and texture in watch movements and this replica watches sale caliber does well in that regard.
