This past week end, I probably photographed the pond for the last time. It had rained on the previous night, which made the temperatures just right for being outside.
I recently had cut a path through the prairie grass, to show the pond to the young couple who plan on buying the farm.
There has been just enough rain to keep the grass growing all summer long.
Reaching the pond, I could see by the reflections, that it was going to be one of those rare moments when everything seems right. Just to make the picture complete, the water lilies, I planted many years ago, were blooming.
Adding to the beauty of it all, were the over cast skies from the rain the night before.
It was a perfect morning....not too hot, no sounds except the frogs and insects. It was a very peaceful moment.

There is still a month before the sale is final.
Goodbyes are never easy for me. I'm thinking I prefer mine to be like taking off a band aid....one yank, a little pain for a while, and then it is all over....
