It's almost pasture burning season again!

The view from Lake View Barn's dock.  Pasture burning is very dramatic at night!  The April controlled burns are part of the rancher's management program.  Two weeks later the cattle are grazing and the emerald green pastures begin to look like golf courses! 
A unique Flint Hills experience!  
When the winds and humidity are just right, it's time to light-er-up, boys!

A calm but not quiet winter's day

Twas the night before Christmas and winds across the lake went calm.
As the lake froze over, a light snow fell leaving a tranquil scene.
As I stepped out to get this picture, it was noisy  - what's going on??
 When out on the lake there arose such a clatter
I looked to my right to see what was the matter.
When what to my wondering eyes should I see
but millions of geese - shouting Christmas greetings to each other.

Then up to the house tops, the coursers they flew
and I heard them exclaim, as they flew out of sight
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Christmas at Lake View Barn.

Welcome to Lake View Barn's Christmas Home Tour!
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonder land.

                                       The stockings were hung by the knotty pine with care!

While visions of gingerbread danced in our heads.

                                                     Joy to the world, the Lord is Come!!

Oh, the weather outside is frightening...

                                             And Frosty the Snowman was a holly, jolly, guy!

The St. John Lutheran Church's Bell Choir was the highlight of the evening!  It was a great time with neighbors and friends!  Thanks, Lady Lakers for organizing the Lake Wabaunsee Christmas Homes Tour again this year!

Nature as art!

The reflection of the clouds brought a Impressionistic Monet look to a Wednesday afternoon!

 Lake Wabaunsee Sunset and Blue Moon August 20.  Thanks Dennis Richter for your photos!
On Aug. 20- 21 (from dusk to dawn) will be a blue moon.  Mostly known as the second full moon in a calendar month, it turns out there are more than a few kinds of blue moons out there. The full moon of Aug. 20, 2013, will be considered a seasonal blue moon — the first in nearly three years. Normally, a season has three months, and hence three full moons, but the eccentricities of our calendar mean that once every three years, a season has an extra full moon. The last seasonal blue moon occurred on Nov. 21, 2010, and won’t happen again until May 21, 2016.
