Making Hay and Flowers

We have been trying to make some hay around here, but the weather has been less than cooperative.  The pasture has been cut, raked, and is waiting to be baled, but it keeps raining on us.  We haven't hayed the property before, so are interested to see how many bales we can get out of it (and if it would be worth the time and money to get our own baler).  We have a man coming to bale it for us.  He'll keep the majority of it for his horses, and we'll learn what our land can produce.  Better than letting it go to waste, plus we should be able to get another cutting yet.

I've also been able to enjoy some cut flowers this Summer.  These are coneflowers, zinnias, and Russian sage (all grown in our yard or garden).  They are being displayed in my recently thrifted $2 milk glass vase.  I love milk glass, and I was excited for this find, and even more excited when I saw the same exact vase at an antique store for $8!  Gotta love a good deal.
