Each time I go by the farm down the road, I watch the movement of their haybales. This ipainting is from one of my views last summer when the stockpile of bales was resting in the barn and in the field nearby.
Today this field is empty and the barn half-filled as the cows have consumed a majority of the hay. The fields across the road from the barn are already turning lime green with new growth as the cycle of haying begins again.
The heaviest of winds spared us yesterday and the welcome rain was more gentle on the trees and land - giving everything a much needed, good soaking. We're in for a warm, sunny weekend - and I've got to get outdoors and begin corralling the weeds as they, like the spring blossoms, take advantage of the longer days of sunshine and warmer temperatures.
Have a great weekend!
