BARNS, HAY WAGON, AND HAY BALES

Do these hay bales remind you of Nabisco Shredded Wheat cereal?

  2. Yes they do. In the winter after a dusting of snow they can look frosted. Wrapped in white plastic from a distance they look like giant marshmallows. Love the oak weathered barns as the one in the background.

  3. Gosh...what a great shot. It is so nice to go to your blog and with a click be transported to another way of life. Your photos are fantastic! I love not only the hay rolls, but the dark sky in the background, with its impending storm looming...

  4. Grampy - You are right -- frosted Nabiscos. Very clever observation.

    Barns always seem to have an earthy quality -- no two ever seem alike yet each offering their own special beauty.

  5. Darcy -- Thanks for the nice words. About storms -- we have certainly had our share of them and it "ain't" over yet. Rain forecast until the beginning of next week. Can I borrow that canoe you have in your blog header? -- barbara

  6. Indeed!! That was my first reaction when I saw them here in Ohio. My idea of bales of hay are the rectagular ones of my summers at my grandparents' farm in Wisconsin. The baling machine fascinated me and and I'd really love to see the equipment used create the bales you've shown here.

    Thanks for the comments. The hay wagon in the photo would be a good possibility for a hay ride.

  9. Kay -- I think it would be interesting to know how those big Nabisco Biscuits are harvested. Will have to investigate it online. -- barbara

  10. Wonderful picture. So is the new header. I've seen round bales of hay in East Europe too and had to realize something that seemed very American isn't necessarily. Farm implement makers must sell internationally as do most other manufacturers today.

  11. June -- Perhaps the manufacturing of these implements are being produced in Europe as well as in North America? "International manufacturing" is a term I would give it. Thanks for the good word on my header. The header photo is an old steel sided vacant warehouse -- I liked the rust patina that had accumulated on it -- a sign of defeat, unfortunately, to the worth of the building today. -- barbara

  12. Very nice photo. The grass is so green! They do look like shredded wheat. It does make animal care easier,when you can put out a big bale for them. Love your header photo too.

  13. Never a big fan of shredded wheat... but if they were piled high with Rice Krispies, we'd be talkin'. hahahaha

  14. Sheri -- Isn't your grass green in DC? I would have thought you were on par with our season. Of course we have had tons of rain!! Thanks -- barbara

  15. Birdman -- I'll see what I can find that is piled with Rice Krispies. Don't think they would hold on a farm wagon. Thanks for the comment -- barbara

  16. Sheri -- Of course your grass in Ontario is not as green as it is here -- and of course you are not in DC. What was I thinking? -- barbara

  18. Vicki -- I do like old commercial buildings, like this old warehouse, as well as homes. Thanks for the nice comment -- barbara
