My World Tuesday

To see more My World Tuesday pictures, click here

I am surrounded by scenes like this - the foothills of the Rockies are predominantly prairie farmland - cattle and ranches, horses and low-lying bushes, animal feed-making fields, which then give way to pine forests and then bloody great snow-capped rocks. I never tire of it.

A peaceful vista for the new autumnal season.

As an aside, it's got me wondering when did the farm machinery change from spewing out rectangular bales to these round ones - how many years ago? It's surely more difficult to make seats for your Ho-Down, or to build your new hay bale home with these large barrels !


  1. Beautiful!

    I remember the appearance of those round bails when I was about 16... so just 10 years ago. ;-)

  2. Wow, what a lovely view you have. Seeing the mountains in the distance would be an awesome sight for me.

  3. a farmland surrounded bu beautiful natural sceneries. i would definitely love to explore more of the place. thanks for sharing.

  4. I used to have a horse and bought hay by the bale. I'm not sure how people buy hay any more if they are all in huge bundles like in your picture. I invite you to come visit Old Fairhaven in Washington State. - Margy

  5. I see you bale your hay into wheels like we do eover here.....and I thought we were the only ons to do it as well !

  6. Indeed they used to be oblong, and piled high into shelters. Not that I would ever go near one.

    Excellent pics!

  7. adullamite - you've reminded me now that I don't often see these wheels of hay stacked up in shelters - many seem to be left out all year round - surely the snow here would rot them?! Apparently not.
