This time of year is always a down time for me regarding putting together stories and photography for publication, which is actually all right, as it allows me the weeks needed to catch up on all the work that needs to be done on our property in order to get ready for fall and winter! Trees trimmed and/or cut down -- bushes clipped -- weeds sprayed -- gravel and dirt moved and replaced around the barn -- landscape material refreshed and replaced. The list goes on and on and on!

Hope you are all doing great and prepping your own places for the upcoming seasons.
