Good Fences

These shots were taken prior to the Halloween winds taking most of the leaves off the trees and during a walk around Lincoln Log Cabin Historical Site.




No fences below, but the evening sun shows up those amber waves of grain, or in this case, a soybean field.


The fields are no longer amber...


...the monstrous combines blew in and confiscated all the grain.

I've left JD and Fergus to fend for themselves for a few days. Have a great week and weekend.

Linking to Good Fences

How sad to lose all the beautiful grain in the fields. Love your photo of one, and also the amazing split rail fence with the still lovely fall leaves! That's my favorite kind of fence!

What a pretty scene in that first shot. Love that type of fencing.
Also the shot with the vine is wonderful. - Great photo of the Soy Bean field, I've never seen that type of a field crop before.

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

It's been years since I have visited the Lincoln Log Cabin site. I love the way they have the furnishings in the cabins to reflect life at that time.
Yes, the combine has been busy here too. Funny... just a few miles from a major city and we have rural glory.

Felicia said...

beautiful fence and images Roan. I love to see the country scenery. The soybeans are disappearing around here too.

barbara l. hale said...

Great pics of the Lincoln fence! And those amber waves of grain!!

I love this style of fence you're sharing today. Very nice capture of the soybean field prior to harvest, but cool to see the farmers at work, too.

Looks like you live in a beautiful spot.

First time I've ever understood what " amber waves of grain" actually are! We are from eastern Washington state originally but I remember the grain looking golden. Yours truly is amber. And beautiful! As all your pictures are.
