Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Its feeling and looking like Fall



It is begining to look and feel like  Fall around here.. I started decorating my door and got side tracked ( yes I do that often.)  I noticed that our local "Klamath Falls "midgies or greenie"  Bugs have finally disappeared..Thank Goodness..the swarms were bad this year...


We could actually  walk out to the garden with out face masks.. They do not bite but look like a greenish mosquito and are a real treat for the birds and fish.. so they are of some good I suppose.. The underside of these sunflowers leaves provided shade  during the day.. and were covered...  if disturbed they would swarm.. Yuk!
 I dont know why but  two of the these 5 sunflowers produced multiple  flowers.. pretty huh? ( from the same seed packet... go figure..)

Today we took in the 61st annual Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair..  To me this means Fall...
Loved watching the sheep shearing demo... This sweet animal seemed to like his haircut.. 

And  of course there was  a huge array of Fair food choices.. and being a gorgeous day certainly added to the pouring of fair goers.. old an d young alike.. 
I didn't have my camera with me only the cell phone one so I missed taking shots of the gorgeous handmade quilts and food judged displays.. These  are some of my favorite things to see along with the animals.. So that's what I did today... how about you? Is it feeling like Fall where you live?

Yes, fall is in the air here too. We had a BBQ last night but had to take the meal inside because it was too chilly to eat on deck. Your sunflowers are beautiful. I need to plant those in my yard. Such a happy flower.

aaahhh...sunflowers! we actually get some strays form the black oiler seeds we put out for the birds!
My favorite part of any fair is all the displays of quilts, canned goods, and giant produce!
