That’s a good picture Ron, I really like that one. Making hay while the sun shines.

I also like how the blast of golden yellow 'cuts a swathe' through the foreground greenery.

A bit to much squashed up if you ask me, the tractor and baler are hiding another trailer with some bales on it.
And that rusty post is making my eyes sore.

Since man laid down his hunting spear,
Johns been chopped down by his ears,
And executed 'til he's dead
But resurrected in our bread.
We sup to martyred John with cheer,
He's alive in all our foaming beer,
In every pint he is reborn,
Let's drink to old John Barleycorn.

A real summery shot, Ron. Very pleasant. I hope the farmers have got a bumper crop this year.

Wonder what the crop was and when it was sown? There is no sign of the crop behind me being harvested yet as it was a late sowing because of the long wet winter.

Doesn’t the “Wutchy” look magnificent now? Everyone laughed when they first planted trees there. Nothing had grown on that mountain of waste for many years and no one believed that anything would. How wrong we all were.

A beautiful ‘rustic’ scene and the rusty post fits in beautifully. A truly lovely photograph which reminds me of when I was a child in the 1950s and we used to sit on the back of the tractor and when our mums brought out tea and sandwiches for the workers, we’d sit with them in the hedgerow and gobble up the food even though we were only playing and not actually helping with the haymaking!
With respect Mick, would a trip to Specsavers help to resolve your sore eyes?
