This post is for my girls
whom dwell in the South {and love it}
but whose hearts yearn for a season of fall--
crops of soybeans, cornfields and harvest.
I took my camera and went to see what I would see.
I came around the curve of this country road
by our new high school, about 10 miles from our home,
to see two barns and a silo peeking over the crop of corn.
I stopped at the edge of the field to glimpse the red barn,
then continued to the other side and
beheld the vines sharing their splendor of fall beauty
like a peacock strutting his feathers.
Drove a bit further down the road,
turned the corner
to discover this farmer harvesting his crops-
the first I have seen this year!
Happy fall, girls.
Love, love, love,
Mom

So, so pretty and lovely. I do miss the country, the way the air smells as you drive between two fields. I know exactly where the barns you photographed are...thanks for sharing a little bit of home! Love you!

Do you teach in the country, or something? Great fields of corn and soy bean and wonderful colors and composition. I need some corn on the cob.

I had a fun time taking these photos and am happy they brought a little fall into your hearts.
