I raised the kitchen window this morning
to a fresh morning breeze
and the smell of new mown hay.
How glorious this new country life is to me:)
Last week they started mowing it,
so anytime now they will start to bale.
We love sitting on the front porch and watching.
With all of today's modern farm equipment,
it doesn't take them long to bale it and bring it in.
We had a little rain yesterday,
and it looks like rain again today.
That's not what a farmer wants to see
when his hay is down.
They go through and rake it to get air in it
and let it get dry before baling.
My roses are starting to bloom.
Since I just planted them this spring,
I didn't know if I would get blooms the first year or not . . .
Also my daisies are starting to bloom.
I brought a couple starts from our old house
before we moved.
I know that most of you are not experiencing
the smell of new mown hay . . .
I wish that I could send you a whiff.
