Family pictures

Ezra and Shannon came out of Africa for a visit bringing over a year of collected clothing and provisions with them.  It was great to have the time together as a family unit.  Jonah joined us when his schedule allowed.  They flew off today for CA, then a wedding of friends in WA.  Next Monday Shannon leaves for Korea where there is a conference where she will present.  Ezra will travel to Nicaragua where he has a week's work in forestry.  These kids do keep busy.
Ma and the boys
Those brothers have a genuine fondness for each other....the the backyard wilderness.
Our other boy, Echo...he's quite an echo of the 2 cats who proceeded him.
It is the time of morning glories and tall mullein.
Tomatoes of rare beauty
Late afternoon sun falling on a new painting just begun...and now that family time has ended I am hoping to get back to work on this more this week.

What a great summer week with family. I've never spent time in Vermont but your photos speak of summer days in fresh warm blue skies, bugs and birds surrounded by green...pleasure!

Thanks Mary Ann; summer is indeed glorious here and we know how to enjoy the nature of it.
