Tracks - Rurality 16

There are many, many fields of wheat around north Alabama this year.
This was taken a couple of weeks ago, and it is beginning to turn yellow now.

It's a challenge.

My Canon Macro 100mm 2.8L is my favorite lens.
I still have to work on moving off 2.8 in order to get more in focus.
It's a hard thing.

Coming soon . . .

 . . . to my backyard are these beautiful lilies.
There are tons of blooms this year.

A couple of years ago they looked like this.

How many pots are you?

Me?  I'm a one pot person.

No real recipe here, but I know a couple of you will ask.

Brown kielbasa or ground round or both, with onion.
Add a can of tomatoes.
Add a can of tomato sauce.
Add raw cabbage.
Add whatever seasoning you want.
When cabbage is near done,
add a can of red beans.
Cook a little while longer.

Serve over creamed potatoes or rice or noodles.
Ok, that makes it more than one pot, doesn't it.

Yes, it's like stuffed cabbage, but without the trouble of stuffing.

My knock-off Riedel wine glasses show their flaws.

I'm sure the real thing at $30/glass wouldn't have those rings revealed by the camera lens.

Gage or Gauge

Or, is this more of a dial?  You got me.  Think I'll just call it the seeder hopper doo-hickey.

This year's back yard science experiment is an extended one.
It is time for a new pool liner, so the cement pond (vinyl pond just doesn't sound right) has been stewing for a few weeks without chemicals while waiting on the new liner to be installed.
It's a pretty color, if  you don't look very closely.
And the frogs like it.
