Can You Believe This?






Cicada



Huh?







Dinner or prince?



Campfire cooking

What a nice time enjoying the outdoors. The cool has been nice, my AC bill last month was terrible. I have seen lots of farmers harvesting and the colors are starting to appear giving a fall appearance to the prairie. I get nostalgic when summer ends, much like I do at the end of winter. It was nice to visit a local farmers market and get a few new potatoes to roast with some chicken over the campfire. The lake was decorated with thousands of water lily blooms. A young girl and her mom walked by one day harvesting some frogs for their meal. Lily and her new housemate Daisy have been playing at the lake a lot down at the farm. I don't get down often enough to see these wild dogs and miss our times together. My work keeps me across the state to much.

  16. Think I'll pass on frog for dinner, thanks. Maybe some of that chicken, though?

    I wish we had monarchs here, but there is too little milkweed for them to eat. They've completely died out:(

  17. I've never had frogs. I wonder if they really do taste like chicken? I'm with Kerry, the grill fare looked more appetizing. Thank you for visiting my blog today and for commenting. Your photos are amazing and your dogs? Adorable.

  18. The monarch numbers here were way way down. They had a rough year all the way from Mexico north....

  19. Catching up on blog reading, Steve, as we have been on the road and some cute photos in this post. But frogs are NOT on the dinner menu at our home and hopefully not at yours.
