This girl in Campbellton, Mo. was cutting a hay field the day we drove past. Check out the close up of this lovely young lady I post on my photo blog a while back by clicking here.
I'm always surprised to see so much new hay being cut, when there are stored bales left over from the last several years or longer (or so it appears) scattered around.
You will see them wrapped in plastic, hidden under tarps, in rows near barns,
Some seem to be rotting in the fields
stored in every nook and cranny possible
Most of the hay around here is now baled in big round bales but I do see the smaller square bales lined up in some fields. I have to admit that I enjoy seeing fields full of hay bales. I must have hundreds of photos of them. We do not have to take a ride in the country either to find a field full of hay bales. My most recent shots were taken in my own back yard. And, I mean that literally.
We returned home on Monday to find the field behind our place had been mowed and baled during the time it took to go into the city for a doctor's appointment. If you knew where to look in this shot you could make out a sliver of our fence that I posted about on Friday Fences last week.
I doubt to many of you expect to find hay bales inside your city limits-- much less your own back yard.
Yep, it is hay time in Franklin County, Missouri
