American Goldfinch

 Sure won't be long these birds won't be so beautiful they will change with the temperature outside.
He was a hungry little finch the birds below just kept wanting to eat and he would run them off and as you can see in the pictures he continued eating.

The Great Indiana State Fair is over I think it had good attendances the weather was great.  If you didn't make it, there is always next year. 
We have gotten  more rain so now maybe we could use some drying time for our corn before harvest starts. 
Just wanted to stop by saw this little bird so added him to my post.
Take care  and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Back again

This is one flower that is seem all over the fairgrounds  but who doesn't like sunflowers.
 Back again in the Pioneer Village today hooking on our rugs.  The one below will be in the Auction on Sat at 12:00 noon  it took 900 hours of work to complete.      It is one rug that would look great in my kitchen as I have roosters and chickens.   Hope we have lots of bidders  I will get my number.  Hope all are enjoying their time at the Fair. I will be back in a few day
Farm report trying to get another cutting of hay in and hauling grain to get ready for harvest.  We did get a 1.96 inches of rain the other day just in time, the beans were starting to roll not something you want to see.  The rain will also help keep the pastures green.
Until we talk again have fun and be kind to each other.  Take a day and go to The Great Indiana State Fair

Pioneer Village

I do love the Pioneer Village   All the old tools and equipment in that building and to think someone used them  Makes me tired to think about how long it took to make something with them.
Well I was rug hooking with a few others should have taken a picture but I didn't
I got to help raise the flag and that is a first for me  The First Lady Karen Pence fired off the cannon woo too loud for me.  Then we raised the flag. 
I have several small gourds in the FFA  Country Store  and they have lots more to look at Jellies, Soaps, Salsa, soup mixes  I believe I saw ice cream  come on by and help them make some money
All for tonight take care and be kind to each other.
