Haying Season

 Round bales seem to be the most popular shape in my area this year

Fields look so clean and neat when the hay has just been cut and made into bales. Cedar is the most popular wood for building fences.


I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

Ah, haying season... brings back memories of sweaty, scratchy struggles with the constantly breaking baler.

Sandra said...

most of the hay i see in blog land is rolled like this. i think rolled they leave it in the field and square they deliver on trucks. but not sure

Cedar is a strong, durable wood!!! Lasting a long, long time without rotting.

I LOVE rolled hay. And I also love the fragrance of freshly mowed.

Very nice pictures - fence in foreground, blue sky, and green fields. Takes awhile to find the right scene at the right time to get pix like those.

Really amazing countryside and images. I also love to see hay rolled like that.

I saw pictures of people manually baling hay on Bolzano DP today. I much prefer the Canadian method! :)

William Kendall said...

So very evocative of late summer. Beautiful shots!

Kathy said...

We've already had three hay cuttings this season with at least one more to come. Hay will be cheap this winter.

Everyone seems to love seeing baled hay in a pretty field, especially when a fence is part of the scene. Love these!

Wonderful rural scenes.

CameraGirl those are some lovely clicks.. rural bliss! I love the round bales! Nothing prettier than round bales in a green field with a barn with a red rust roof! Awesome split rail fence!

Small City Scenes said...

Lots of round bales out this way too. Seems to be the thing alright. Cedar is best for fences--it lasts the longest.

I could hear the chain saws when the logging was going on. rowr rowr started every morning at 6AM. And then the big machines when they were loading the trucks.
Bob and i have walked up in that area so it is sad to see the trees go. They do replant so that is good. MB

Lisa Gordon said...

These are such lovely scenes.
I especially love the first one.

Ileana said...

The hay bales are always nice to see!

Shammickite said...

I'm very fond of those cedar fences, I have never seen them before coming to live in Canada.

Lowell said...

Lots of round bales here, too. When a teen I worked the back end of a hay baler - we made rectangular bales. That was an awful job!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Wonderful rural scenes EG.. being a city gal :) I have no idea what other shapes hay bales come in ?

Susan Anderson said...

Kind of a heartwarming sight. Makes me long for a rocking chair and a porch!

=)

Mama Zen said...

Exquisite pictures!

Ginny said...

Such awesome shots! These pictures are really timeless, they could have been taken in almost any decade. Yes, it is all round here, too. It must be better equipment and faster. Only once have I seen the old square kind.

RedPat said...

Funny how all the bales are round now!

Linda W. said...

Nice landscapes. I like those round bales.
