The Farm, Sunflowers and Honeybees

6-The old barn-e

Late evening rain showers always bring fresh morning air to the farm when I visit. The bee hives were not ready  to harvest so the bees continued their busy work gathering the nectar from the late summer flowers. I wonder if they saw the Teddybear Sunflowers in the field next to the rows of corn husks that were drying in the August sun.

The henhouse was quiet with only a few chickens pecking around the ground. Their nests had already been robbed for our morning breakfast.

Life is good and the sun is shining on my back.
