Hey, Hay/Rural Thursday

 Bales ready to be picked up and hauled to the barn...or  to wherever

The weather here has been perfect (warm and dry) for cutting hay, drying it and then baling.

Great pictures you show. I do not think that they have started making round bales here in Denmark yet! Wishing you a good Thursday. Hanne Bente

I love seeing these perfectly formed bales of hay in fields. Your photo of just one by the tree is a super composition.

This is a familiar sight in our area too. We are in the midst of our second hay cutting this season. If all goes well, there will be two more!

I love how something so simple makes such a stunning pic.

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful photos! I love the countryside and seeing the harvested crops waiting for removal to wherever. Bales of hay make great architectural pieces don't they?

Halcyon said...

Such a wonderful sight. Traditionally rural.

My mom says she'll take all she can get! Nothing is growing here, so hay is hard to come by... they found someone a couple weeks ago that had enough to sell over what they needed for their own farm & horses... on the way to take it home, several bales fell off the trailer cuz it wasn't loaded right & they had to go back & pick it all up off the highway! What a mess... not to mention it was about 107 degrees! YiKeS! =0

It would still be too wet to harvest, here, but it's looking better!

Virginia said...

Beautifully composed!!! I think round bales are so much cuter! HA

Wonderful 'country' shots!

LONDONLULU said...

These are just beautiful - I feel like I've been transported to another era! (Or at least an amazing Van Gogh painting or something similar! :)

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Love that country scene!

Lisa Gordon said...

How beautiful these are!
I especially love the second one. What a wonderful composition.

Nancy Claeys said...

I always love seeing fresh hay bales.

Thank you for sharing at Rural Thursdays this week. xo

Heyyyy, I mean hayyyy. Did you know that this week's full moon is called the Full Hay Moon? It's called Thunder Moon and Buck Moon as well, but here and now, I'll stick with the Full Hay Moon.

Hey, I like your composition here.

Renae said...

I am loving the tree, in both shots. Trees speak a language all their own. I love trees!
Trees and Eagles, or eagles in trees works, too.

Rambling Round said...

Same thing going on in South Alabama! We just need some rain to grow MORE hay.

Nature in the Burbs said...

Beautiful place and photos

Randy said...

Love that second shot.

joanne said...

great capture of a lovely scene.....farming is hard work, and I salute your efforts!

Jack said...

Not many bales of hay around here, but I could probably find some if I drove 30 minutes.

Carletta said...

Love the tree and lone bale of hay!
What a lovely scene!
Those are more tightly baled that what we see here.

cieldequimper said...

Oh boy, is it that time already? Marvellous. It's hard work for some but for me it means a lazy Sunday picnic in a field...

Lucie Cermanova said...

Lovely images. Very peaceful view. Have a great day.

Cezar and Léia said...

Idyllic scenery, your pictures are sweet and beautiful postcards!

Stephanie said...

Beautiful scenery, love the third shot the best.

Lowell said...

Hey there, you with the eyes of red. Hey there, you with the allergies. I can sneeze already just looking at this hay picture! Pretty though!

Lmkazmierczak said...

Perfect. Happy summer♫♪

Rose said...

Oh, my, I love that shot with the single bale of hay under the tree.

It is so hot here...things are just drying up and dying...I don't think a LOT of the corn is going to make anything at all. We saw a field of soy beans that looked like they were drying up as well.

It was 108º here for a while...every day for the past week has had temps reach over 100ºF.

Marie said...

Wonderful photos! I always love seeing the hay baling!
