Sunday Stills (Summer 7-18-10)

This week's Sunday Stills challenge is Summer.

Flowers in bloom, cactus,
and lizards
remind me of summer.

Summer is buying fresh hay for the horses,
playing in a river with your dog,
wading in the water to feed ducks,
sprinkler fun,
and wearing short sleeves and shorts in the hot sun and wind.

For more Sunday Stills, please visit Ed's website here.

Great photos! love the lizard. Where is that "hay market" located at? Gallup has a bunch of hay haulers at their flea market, but not many carry grass hay. I'm looking for a grass hay source.

I'm sure the dogs likes playing in the river. The first shot brings out the softness of the flowers against the sharpness of the cactus.

Dunappy- the hay is for sale in Chinle. I don't know how much or what kind- I probably should have asked. It sure looked nice though.

The self portrait is at Canyon de Chelly. I went there over 4th of July weekend. Matter of fact, all but the sprinker shot are from that trip.

What neat shots! The sprinkler catch is so fun! The hay market is an interesting concept. We cut our own, to feed several hundred head of cattle thru the winter. It looks like it would be kind of like shopping for groceries buying it like in the photo!
