It's Hot! What else could we expect but hot in July? At least it's not as quite as bad as last year although it has been 106° a few days. Only 17 days over 100° so far and we had over 80 last year.
We have had cedar choppers harvesting some cedar trees that died from last years drought. These are just east of the house so we will eventually have some extra parking for when we have big events here at the ranch. I was able to burn the cedar tops before the burn ban went into effect. I've been burning stumps within the fire ring since. It's been too hot to completely finish the area, but it will get done by fall.
It's been nice watching the young fawns come up to the house this summer. There are three fawns with the does that come on a regular basis.
We seems like we have even more Painted Buntings this year. Fewer hummingbirds though.
