photoblog image Straw and Sky Sunday

Straw and Sky Sunday

Fields and skies have looked like this for a month.  We got a small amount of rain after pure drought in my area and it has not rained again. It has been wonderful weather for field grains and everything else that does not need a lot of moisture. Blossom was heavy and so is fruiting of everthing that involves a blossom. Areas that got rain showers have fared very well but my small hillside that I share with a neighbour baked and dwarfed plants and fruit. Very interesting to watch the changes occurring year by year.

I would not like to be farmer. Too many uncertainties caused the weather. This is a fine view, though, and sums up this time of the year very well.
Mary MacADNski: I would love to be a farmer. I would diversify for the various weather conditions.

Now is autumn again - I love your image!
You have had a very dry summer by the sound of it Mary. We have had a real mixed bag of weather this year!
You can see that you have had the sunshine!
