Hay bales, rolls, whatever, in a field
Mathews, VA.
I asked TSAnnie to stop the car;
NOW, PULLOVERNOW!!!!
to get this shot.
Being the friend, photographer, she is, as well as being my Blister, she did.

Farmers roll hay at the end of summer as the grasses dry, these were photographed in mid-July.

  1. If you told me to pull over, I'd DO it, DARYL!

    Those rolly polly bales of hay are all over texas too.

  8. GREAT shot!!! I love when they "bag" the rolls -- then they look like GIANT marshmallows sitting out in the field! LOL! But the naturals are just soooo pretty!

  9. When I see these in summer it says to me that Fall is just a few weeks away. Glad you stopped the car for this one.

  10. Yes, Cloudia. When Daryl says pull over, it's best to obey. There's usually a very good reason for it. And it's usually a photograph!

    This is great, btw. I love the colors.

  11. Love seeing these hay rolls. Don't know why, but they always make me smile. They are just very pleasing.

  13. I like taking pictures of bucolic farm scenes myself. I had a ball 10 years ago when I visited Amish country in Ohio. My favorite were the clotheslines of laundry. I never see that around here anymore.

  14. I like how the hay pulls you into the scene, and then you are rewarded with more, like the houses in the background.

  17. Hay rolls are totally Virginian. They always remind me of Shredded Wheat. :-) How do you have a harvest hayride, though, I wonder, if you have rolls instead of bales???

  18. Whenever my family would drive past these kinds of hay bales, my dad would always say, 'Weetabix'.

    Thanks to your Blister for stopping for the shot.

  20. Round bales....I know it's such a bummer that that's what they are called.

    Personally I like Grandma J's 'rolly polly bales' and I think I will start calling them that...

    We see these all over the place down here. Gotta get that stuff in before it rains otherwise it gets moldy and unusable.

    And I'm with Cloudia... if you told me to pull over, I wouldn't ask questions either.

  22. I wonder if a scene like that is more foreign to me or you. I grew up around this, but I don't see it unless I travel now. Don't have to travel far at all, but it's just not something I see much.
