August in the countryside

This morning I went to a see a friend who lives out in the country. It's a pretty highway and I often want to stop and take pictures on the way. Today I noticed bales of hay all rolled up in the fields as well as soybeans and corn ready to be harvested, so I pulled over onto a dirt road and took a few. 

It's sweltering hot again today, a typical August afternoon. I can't wait for September to get here.


  1. Those pictures look like I could have taken them here in the Midwest. Your skies are beautiful and it looks like a lovely day despite the heat. We've had that horrible heat for quite a while but the other day we had a terrible thunderstorm that lasted all day and night and it brought our temps down a bit! For a few days at least we will have highs in the 80's which is wonderful for a change. Maybe you'll get some rain and cooler weather soon too!

  2. The countryside is pretty. I hope you get cooler weather soon, and I hope I do, too. Tropical Storm Fred is moving in here.


    1. Your farmers seem to be getting on well with the crops.

  3. We’re grateful to get to mid-August because the countdown to September starts. I’d love a drive in the country, but it gets hotter away from the coast. Two weeks until town becomes a bit more civilized. Beautiful photos!

  4. Beautiful. It does the soul good to drive out into the countryside now and then.

  5. Lovely. The season is progressing exactly as it should.

  6. Getting the bales in here too; my neighbour was at it yesterday in 34 C heat. He must be crazy.

  7. I wonder how many words you and your country friend exchanged. No need to list the subjects you covered.

  8. I love those round bales. Up here we have rectangular blocks. We had a quick hot spell, but now the temps are forecast to be in the mid-80's, though what seems to be ever present rain is also in the forecast.

  9. I am enjoying your photos from the comfort of my air conditioned home! =)

  10. Most fields around here have been harvested, too. It has been hot all week, with the hottest part starting on Thursday. All day today, I was rather uncomfortably hot and sweaty; I hate being like that! Now a thunderstorm has just finished offloading copious amounts of rain on our area, the sun is back out and I am hoping for a cooler night. By Tuesday, we are supposed to see a rather drastic drop in temperature. It has been exremely unsettled all summer this year.

  11. I wonder how much those huge rolls of hay weigh??

  12. I've been watching the veggie boys on you tube...north east Pennsylvania..really beautiful and love them boys.

  13. Love your photos from the country, near-neighbor. Thankfully, we don't get what I'd consider "sweltering" up here in the mountains. Have a wonderful week!

  14. Add a few rolling hills in the background and your pictures could have been taken here. My sister and her husband have two more fields of hay to bring in...if only it would stop raining for a couple days in a row.
