Pictures within a half-mile of home.

I don't appreciate electricity until it goes off.

Ripe Mulberries

Dryland Corn

Not quite ripe wheat

Happy Dog

well that was very nice. I like the telephone poles - could be a metaphor for life into the future... the mulberries is a great shot. color and clarity AND for me memories... we had a mulberry tree in our yard in Arizona as children... never wore shoes duing the summer so always had mulberry juice stained feet. thank you .

Hi Mary, I love seeing those vast fields around your home town. Really beautiful views and what a cute dog! Certainly all the photographs are reason to celebrate life.
Enjoy your weekend.

Great photos.

My brother always said his corn was doing well if it was "knee-high by the 4th of July." Is that saying used in your area, too?

I like your pictures because they give me a really good idea of where you live: the whole point of the "My Town" shoot-out. The wheat is beautiful.
