Hey Farmgirl! Will you make it through the winter without having to buy more hay?
What a cool post :) Love it, the big barn o' hay is the pillar of strength at the farm.
Just look at all the pretty hay!My parents live in the Ozarks. Your blog makes me want to pull up stakes and relocate.Mona, I love your comment about the "barn o'hay" being "the pillar of strength at the farm". I will be seeing my hay in a more poetic light from now on!
Great shots! I guess you're using hay from the other side of the barn - those haystacks are identical!
Really nice series --
I'm telling you, Susan, you need to sell these as prints! This would be fantastic as a grouping of 4. You ave such a talent and so many great pics :) Have I told you lately how much I love your site?
The seasons at your farm are so beautiful. So is the furry donkey. Sending you good juice from here, where our "winter" is a week or so of this rain.XO.
I always love this series and Jeff is so right.
Hi Kat,Gosh I hope so!Hi Mona,Oooh. Pillar of strength. I like that--especially as the barn is slowly falling over! (I'm not taking that as a sign. : )Hi IGO,Isn't it wonderful when you suddenly realize (or are reminded) that something mundane is actually poetic?Hi Catherine,Thanks. Well, we are using hay from the other side, and we didn't start feeding until December, so the hay in those first photos pretty much stayed the same (except for where the dogs knocked some down while cavorting in their giant hay fort).But if you look at the top snowy photo, you'll notice that the far right "section" of the barn is completely empty! : )And did everybody find the hidden dog in the photo?Hi AK,Thank you. : )Hi Jeff,Hmmmm. Am I running a contest I forgot about? Seriously, though. Thanks so much. I'm flattered by your praise. And one of these days maybe you can become my first customer! : )Hi Tana,That is one of the neat things about living here--the severe change of seasons. After 12 years, this California girl is still getting used to it. And taking all these photos over the past 9 months has really made me aware of just how different things look on the farm throughout the year. It's truly amazing. Even Dan changes with the seasons. Who knew!? : )Hi Amy,Well at least somebody is nicely agreeing with Jeff about something. He's had a bit of a rough time over here this weekend, LOL.
I like how you tell a story with your time sequence series of the same hay stack.
HI Susan, I noted the before and after lawn manicure. Guess who?
