A Drive In The Country

I took a drive recently and here are some pictures to share that I took. You can click on any to enlarge them.

Corn looks good.

A lovely view!

Wheat is looking great! They have had soybeans and corn here, but this year it's wheat!

A Ground Hog family enjoying some greens!

Raking hay.

Hay baled and put in a row.

More hay, and I love the lay of the land here wih the hills in the background. So pretty!

Hope you enjoyed!

Look at Rachel's drive in the country photos and you have also taken a drive in my countryside only I can't take pictures that good. Rachel, that "Wheat is looking great" photo is definitely a prize winner. Thanks so much for sharing.

Rachel, Your photos are beautiful. I used to love to drive in the country and look at all the fields, crops and such. Now, I have to keep my eyes on the road and miss half the scenery.lol. Have a great weekend.

I love drives in the country, to me there's nothing more relaxing than that. Wide open fields or fields filled with growing produce, so wonderful to see. Your pictures are beautiful, dear Rachel, I wish I could have been on that drive with you:-) xoxo

LOVED LOVED LOVED, these pictures, my dear. You have a real eye for the countryside where you live---These are all very very beautiful...! Those bales in that first picture---STUNNING!
All of these give me such a feeling of "place" and "time"....
Wonderful, my dear----Just Wonderful!

I enjoyed riding along with you, Rachel. Thank you. It looked so serenic and you did justice with the camera.

Too bad the bottom lands along the Missouri River don't look that nice. We visited Nebraska and Iowa a couple of weeks ago. Then they were preparing for the flooding they are getting now.

All that could have been prevented but someone was asleep at the wheel. If you get all the snow there was in the drainage basin then when it melts it will exceed the capacity of your dams unless you start letting the water out way ahead of time.

My corn sure isn't that tall. It's supposed to be "knee high by the 4th of July" but mine will have to do some pretty fast growing to achieve that. We have had a very cool spring and everything is growing slow.
The scenery is beautiful. I can understand why you like taking drives and aren't you glad you have a good camera to bring some of the scenery home with you?

How nice! Thanks for the tour! Beautiful pics. It is nice to have rolling hills.
We are getting some more rain. I am so grateful... we have been in a Moderate Drought for weeks... our corn looks like cactus! But it is shaping up and filling out as we speak!
Thanks for the ride!

I absolutely love drives in the country even though I live in the country! The pictures of the hay, corn, wheat and the others are just spectacular!!! Another thing is to ride by someone mowing the grass and have that lovely smell come into the car! I really think someone should make perfume out of it.

Funny to have one turkey by herself???? Mine are usually in groups, small ones in the summer and BIG ones in the winter. Maybe she will bring her friends especially if you feed her! :o)

I also, am a nature lover, and there's nothing I like more, then to drive and photograph the countryside. Our neighboring wheat field are breathtaking to me, especially when you can see that it has a beautiful glow about it.
