The long rows (and a lot of footsteps!) ….

I thought I would share an image of the new spring growth at work (taken just over a week ago), which is going at what seems like a rate of knots.  This is from the block that has the longest rows – each is approximately 222 metres (242 yards) long – a lot of walking and far easier on a quad bike if you are in a hurry!

MMC37 – A poppy in macro…

I have submitted this to the 37th Monochrome Madness and it is a happy coincidence that I have chosen a poppy to be posted on this special Remembrance Day (though this image is not of a Flanders Poppy).

Late spring seed heads…

Firstly apologies as I have been a little sporadic in the blog world of late – am playing catch up!

I saw this mixture of tiny little grass seed heads last weekend at Pyalong. The shape of some of the seeds reminded me of hops and almost looked like they were on little fishing lines – very delicate and pretty.  It was blowing a gale so not as sharp as I would want but the high afternoon light was beautiful 🙂

Rain on the plain…

Yesterday it was windy with heavy shower bands going through and I felt the urge to go to my ‘soothing ground’, about an hour north of where we live.  Pyalong again…it is much, much drier, but I had seen on the radar that there big, fast moving rain storms going through.  I captured this with the wind howling, in absolute spring sunshine watching the rain approach…now soothed 🙂 🙂
