Today has been another hot and smoky day with low air quality. I have been trying to stay inside as much as possible until the smoke starts to clear.
However, I spent a little time outdoors today as we had a potluck at the orchard. My sinuses are already so messed up that a little more time outdoors couldn’t make it much worse.
Since I am miserable and can’t concentrate much I am just posting a few pictures I took today with minimum commentary.
Here is a sight that usually greets me when I get to the orchard. I am almost always greeted by the dog. She patiently waits for me to get out of the car and give her a bit of attention.
The cats are usually a bit harder to find, especially on a hot day. Here they are taking it easy in the shade.
The chickens are easy enough to find. They of course are in the chicken coop. I think they thought I was bringing them some scraps because they came running to the fence when I came near.
Apricot harvest is mainly over, but there were still a few apricots on the trees. They look so beautiful and delicious.
This year there are a lot of walnuts on the trees in the orchard. The orchard is finally maturing and there should be a good harvest. However, it is still a month away.
