And Now, For Something Pretty

My drive to town, for which I took a two-mile detour to look at pretty green land:



That's a little old house in the distance, now used by a group of trail riders as a meeting house in the warm-weather season. Wind-blown soybeans are in the foreground.

Just a couple days ago, huge hay rounds dotted this field. I missed them, but the pic is still pretty, especially with the stormclouds moving in.

The yellow sign in this one says "NARROW BRIDGE." They aren't kidding. It's one of those almost 1.5 lane bridges, all stone, and should have probably been replaced twenty years ago. And that shallow valley and all its fields was completely under water during the last flood.

And on the way home after dinner, the sunset.

It is really lovely right now. We've been fortunate this summer--dodging the heat completely until just the last couple weeks, really. Considering how miserable a winter we had, it's been a nice gift.

When will fall begin for you?

This year, it's kinda hard to tell. Summer has been so much cooler than usual, and we're predicted to drop into the 70s within the next week.

Then again, we could have a heat wave in October.

It's a unique summer green -- deep and mature, not far from sliding into autumn. Already the early cornstalks are tipped with gold. It won't be long before those green soybean fields in the pics begin to turn bright yellow. That's all a different kind of pretty!
