Love That Sweet Smell of Hay

Not much can beat the sweet smell of freshly mowed, curing in the field alfalfa....ahhhhhh~

First Cutting
Ann Mare drives a pretty mean swather ;~)

First cutting is on the ground...good to see the results of all that irritation irrigation.

Ahhhh...The Sweet Smell of Hay
Green hay and blue skies...crossing our fingers that the clouds stay parted.

We had visitors last evening...looks to be a bunch of yearlings. There were three spikes in the bunch. They were eating weeds in the barn yard while the field of newly mowed alfalfa was just behind them...eventually they moved on to the alfalfa. Can't stop 'um!

You cracked me up with the irritation/irrigation thing. Ya gotta wonder with the words being so close!
The alfalfa is darn pretty - it sets off the deer so beautifully, no wonder they want to be there!

Janice said...

Boy do I live in the wrong place, you can't even tell they grow hay around here....and I have to say none as nice as yours.....MMmmmmm good I can smell that all the way over here.
