Took Sky out to the WMA this morning. Warm, but no rain falling. The WMA is set up as a prairie. It was a farmstead, but the DNR returned it with burn offs, cutting trees, and replanting prairie grasses. The prairie flowers were beautiful. A sea of waist deep yellow, purple, and white. Lots of bees humming. The heat took Sky out quickly, but he had a good time running and jumping, smelling everything.
Brother sent pics of the pups, and is taking a person to the litter to make a pick. He has 3 others still trying to convince their wives that a new pup is a necessity.
Apples are looking good. Hail and wind took out the apricots, birds got the cherries.
We seem to be in a different than usual weather cycle. We don't get just rain. We get winds and a half inch of rain in an hour or less.
