Retrospective thirty (August 2014)

Given the way in which blogs are presented, I am convinced that posts which reside more than a scroll or two behind the most recent are doomed to languish and be forgotten. Because I believe there is value in looking at contributions from days, weeks, and even months ago, I present a gallery of images presented during August of 2014. Hovering an image will reveal its title. Clicking one will take you to a carousel view and you can either move through the collection or click the links to read each post in its original form. This is the thirtieth in my series of retrospectives. If you missed any of them you can find them all by clicking Retrospective in the tag cloud in the sidebar.

  1. I remember all of these. Particularly love the bold colors in the veggies and flowers. Looking forward to seeing what the new neighborhood provides for subject matter come spring/summer!

  2. I just got caught up in the post about baling. Given the discussion of “sailing” bales, your title, “Baling, baling, over the bounding…”, was just right. And the stories of the runaway bales reminded me of an entirely true story about a cat that jumped into a friend’s old farm truck. He’d pulled up next to the creek embankment, but hadn’t put on the parking brake. When the cat jumped in through the driver’s side window, he hit the gear lever and threw it into neutral. That truck was in the creek before you could say, “Scat, cat!” From that day forward, the cat had a new name, which isn’t suitable for a family blog.

    • Great story. One hears tales such as that all the time and wonders what fraction are apocryphal … I’m glad to know that some fraction, at least, are true!
