Harvest by happypat

Harvest

The view from our back door tonight as the harvest gets underway.
It is a bit over ripe but the ground has been so wet that it has been badly delayed.
Lots of dust flying in the evening sun.

Just down the road in the village the tractor pulling is underway. Lots of noise & smoke there too but a completely different thing to look at.
There are so many cars & tents & noise but not my cup of tea. Harry has gone to watch.
I have four Americans in but not one of them have checked in, will have to wait up for them...typical man thing!

Three good things:
1. Watching the women's rugby World Cup final between England & New Zealand. Great Haka from the women!
2. Finished a rather good book by Fredrick Backman called The Scandal also known as Beartown in the USA. Took me a while to get into it, very different from my usual type.
3. A little dog found in NZ.
Nice shot. Harvest time is quickly approaching here

You have a great view point to keep an eye on things.. st least they are getting the crop off so many crops got left in the paddocks here this past season because it was so wet.. how are our girls going in the rugby. Lost dog I nz?

Forgot about dog, went under house digging & buried itself! There all night as they couldn't find it but Brian crawled under & dug it out yesterday morning! What a night they had! Score now 17 all.

@julzmaioro well done New Zealand!

I see the final score now and NZ will be proud! The rural scene out there is always so nice to view and watch the farmers at work. The wee dog must have barked surely!

@maggiemae yes but they couldn't tell where it was coming from, she had buried herself & it was muffled. They searched everywhere, it was the other dog that found her in the end.

How lucky that the little dog survived the night in a small area with not much air! A good news story.
