Hay fever

It’s a busy weekend with the band so I’m not finding time for new shots–but, hey, they’re all new if no one has seen them. Last week I posted some photos I took while out on a drive through the local countryside. Here’s another image from the same shoot–in fact, this is the field that’s only partially in view in my “Old County Road” post.

Wrapped silage

No, it’s not a small installation by Christo, but plastic wrapped food for livestock ;^). Wrapped silage is not a usual sight here in the county, but because of the unusually wet weather we had in late June it kind of makes sense. I grabbed the scene during my mind mellowing drive through the hills a few days back. It was nice of the farmer to arrange the bales in such an aesthetically pleasing way.
