Still have to find the pic that shows more of the flax crop. headed back out to the farm on this gorgeous 75F sunny day.

The pic with the pink fleurs and the flax I really liked (Bernie do you know what the pink flower is?)

Another pic is part of our hay flats (opposite the bush is the creeks valley). Wagon is from really way back when ie almost original settlement (and sadly it looks like it too)

Found another road showed both our canola (yellow crop that we grow for cooking oil and margarine) and flax.

Canola in full bloom (making the sun jealous)

and the wee froggy that I spent part of the morn catching (and releasing). Always good to have a bit of your inner child come out to play. :o)

BTW it is those hills behind our farm that the Alberta clippers hit on their way down to the States (and my oh my did they get hit often this past winter).

Currently 79, highs in mid 80s but the humidity was pretty high. Felt like we were in a sauna today.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

74 with a 9 mph. breeze after 82 degrees for high , warm for a while comfortable night
69% humidity but the cool of the night negates that humidity ,, nice ..
Hopefully the cucumbers and melons will like the temperature part of that anyway .

Mid 70's today and what a lovely day it was. I ate my breakfast in our city's park. :o)
