Steph and Cullen's Farm

Steph got this cement horse head one year when we drove to Texas to visit Jessica. We went to a lot of flea markets those years. The rust color comes from an acid poured over the cement. Looks really nice.

This little rooster just loves to wake us up in the morning! The young ones try to copy him - but it comes out pretty squeaky!

Steph's Morning Glories are still in bloom. Just that 4 1/2 hours south makes a lot of difference. We had a killing frost last night, and it's going to happen again tonight. We had 26 degrees at 6 am, and 29 degrees at 7:30 this morning. This year I'm not going to work so hard to save my blooms, as a new puppy has had a hay-day this summer with my flowers. Next summer should be better.

The horses know when supper is served! The sun set as we were watching the horses and visiting.

Stephani came to Louisiana with us, leaving Cullen home to go to work and do chores, etc. etc. When we got home, he had a surprise for Stephani. He and a friend had put up 3 flood lights on 30' poles for their outdoor arena. They will be putting up 2 or 3 more. This will be so good for her when she is giving riding lessons, and training horses. She was so excited!
