Did you get a chance to smell the hay as it was being cut, and drying?
That is one smell the city can never replace!

I just love seeing these rolls of hay! Farmers here just pile them up so I find this amazing.

I know the feeling the farmers have when the hay has been baled! Wonderful! Beautiful shot!

Just went and picked up some newly baled hay yesterday. Not the rolls though. Haying is going on here too although the farmer I got the hay from said it was second cutting. wild huh! MB

Wonderful summerly image. I like the calm atmosphere.

Love it! Around here the farmers cover many of the hay rolls with this strong white plastic material so they look like giant marshmellows. They leave those in the fields till they need to bring them in for the cows as winter progresses. RYC: it was disappointing not to get the full 'fest' but we've gone the last two years so have had the experience. So beautiful it's always nice to get to view again though.

Another lovely and serene scene! You have the most scenic views where you live. :)
It's the same here for rain. I just hope it doesn't turn wet and rainy here before the farmers can do a second cutting.

I'm sneezing. I'm always facinated by the rolls of hay. In my part of the world, the hay is in bales, like a box, not round.

This is a beautiful pastoral scene. I really like it.

I wonder if it will be a good hay season. Here it has been a bad berry and fruit crop due to the cold and rain....Michelle
