Some Rural Ramblings…
Sunday afternoon The Farmer decided he wanted to show me the farms along one rural roads he travels on the way to work every week-day. He told me not to forget my camera, and off we went.
Here’s the pictures from that trip, in the order I took them as we were driving down the road. . .
Lots of farmers have been baling hay. When I was younger, it was all square bales. Of course they really aren’t square, they’re rectangular… but anyway, I digress.
In this part of the world, you see a lot of fields of cotton, soybeans and corn. As you’re driving down the road, this particular combo has cotton in the first field, and corn in the field beside it.
Here’s a close-up of the cotton field… I like all the long, neat rows.
It was just a beautiful summer day, if a trifle hot (high 90s).
Did I mention a lot of farmers are baling hay?
We went by a farm pond with a dead tree in it.
There was a vulture in the field beside the pond.
They’re not exactly the loveliest bird to see up close. . .
But they sure can fly! Oh, and by the way… you DID notice more hay in the making in this field?
This fence line caught my eye.
Most of the fence isn’t that remarkable, but the corner post is decorated.
And on that note, I’ll end for the day. Check back tomorrow for part 2 of our Rural Ramblings!
