Sometimes Mother Nature gives a moment of relief from the summer heat and humidity.
She turns down the temperature and humidity dials, throws in a breeze and partly cloudy skies.
Usually, I'm able to take a break from work to enjoy a few hours of it.
Yesterday, I captured the entire day.
Caeli, the Border collie, and I spent it at a herding clinic. In the early morning, many participants wore sweatshirts in the morning chill. In the afternoon, we worked dogs and sheep without breaking sweating -- much.
Back on our farm in the evening, I admired the pink swirls in the darkening sky.
Mother Nature topped the perfect day with a full moon that highlighted white horse manes and illuminated the horses as they galloped in from pasture.
I stood in the paddock, listening to crickets, admiring the moon, savoring the last bits of a perfect July day.
