Around Christian County, KY

Scenes of early summer


Wheat is ripening. Some fields were harvested last week.
This wheatfield is across the road from our house, and
the wheat seems to be a particularly tall variety. Our
neighbor will harvest both straw and grain.



Native daylilies are blooming in the road ditches.


Starbucks Coffee in Hopkinsville is hosting half a dozen 
bird nests, built into the big letters on the side of the building.
I suppose these cavities are the best substitute for holes in a cliff 
that the birds could find. Hurry, Mama! Baby's hungry!

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
