Coming Home to Beauty

Monica: I came home this afternoon to cooler weather and grayer skies, but most importantly, to the open arms and smiling face of my husband. I love that he cheerfully takes on all the tasks of the Farm while I'm away, which is no small feat. There is plenty of work for the two of us, and when there's only one, it can be overwhelming. When I walked in the door, he was on the phone and there were guests in the office waiting to be checked in. I had a car-full of bags to unload, so our reunion was put off for a good half hour. When I walked into our home, I saw a pot of blooming orchids on the kitchen table with a note: "Welcome home, sweetheart! I missed you!" It's so good to be home.

Evelyn: Rain does such amazing things to the landscape—and there has been a modest monsoon season carrying on around here that had me staring at the world through panes of glass and behind wiper blades most late afternoons. Jumping in between the drizzle and torrents I got to capture brilliant dabbles of water hanging like spectators over the rest of the leaves below.
