80 Acres: Drought July

There's a new post up at the 80 Acres blog.   You can contrast the header picture, also taken in July, with the first picture in the post--both are of the near meadow.    In the header, the grass is green (summer green for our grass, not English green...) and the sky is full of soft cumulus clouds that have at least some potential for rain.  In the other, taken July 4, the grass is burnt brown and the sky has almost no clouds, and a flat hard blue.

But there's always some beauty.  A grasshopper, a few flowers, a dragonfly by the lily pond.
