“making hay while the sun shines”

We returned home last Thursday in the middle of the day and just before we got home we came upon this beautiful field where the farmer was cutting his hay and had quite a few round bales scattered about the field. I wanted to get a picture, but the sun was too high in the sky so we went home to return during the ‘golden hour’ to get a picture. When we returned, to our surprise the field was totally cleared of hay bales. We laughed it off and said, “that gives a new meaning to ‘making hay while the sun shines’.” We don’t give up easily though we only had to drive a couple of blocks to find another great field with hay bales still there.


I like the barbed wire in the foreground.

    When we had our hay cut, it was amazing. I’d never been in a paddock full of giant round hay bales before. Beautiful!
