What a beautiful summer photo, Derek! I like the color of the hay, the hay bales and tractor, and of course, the title!:) Best regards, Anne

Thank you so much Sankos, Renata & Anne. Once a year I and others in the area help out our local farmers. The hay did smell great, and it is still coming out my nose! :-) Always good to do hard work on the hottest day. best wishes, Derek

Hay! Good shot Derek...did they put you to work out there? The hay looks a little brown, did it get rained on? We're having a hard time getting our first cut in. We still have several fields to do and second has caught up to first. Where is summer?????

Oh yes Laurel, I am the "uber" hauler and rafter stacker engineer. Hardest physical work I do all year. It was a bit greener in real life :-). Glad to hear you some some left for me. Be right there. "Bummer Summer" - CBC news said this morning.

Hay is in the barn, harvested 100 garlic today and have a bit of time to look at great photos. You have fun too Renata; Derek

Renáta Kuss on August 8, 2011

OMG Derek! You are going to smell really bad after eating all that garlic, but you'll be healthy and vampireless! ;D

I used to buck bails of hay like these as a kid.. Not my dream job... I like the warm colors though.. ;)
