I heard that the farmers out West are going to try to send some hay east. The weather was good on the Prairies this summer and the yields will be perhaps a bumper crop. Remember when we sent hay out West several years ago when we had good weather and they had a drought? I like the way farmers organize and get things done without need of government programs.
Last long weekend of the summer and it's shaping up to be another super weekend. Three of our kids will touch base here before embarking on their fall schedules - well, our son who drives truck will still spend his off days here. I feel sufficiently full of sun and warmth that I'm actually looking forward to the fall and winter. Time to bake some apple pies, and get out the knitting needles.

It was about 3" long, and the tufts are poisonous to the touch.
The male adult moth is a buttery yellow and the female is a rusty red, and they both have dark "eyes" on their hind wings. The moths are about 2" across. I have seen the adult moths other years but I haven't seen any this year.

Our daughter, her husband and their two little boys are coming to stay for a few days, so I'll be busy until the dust settles.
