Bales by happypat

Bales

They worked hard yesterday combining all the wheat, this field & another to the left & another right behind me.
We could hear a bit of banging last night so I think there had been a bit if a break down but this was the scene we woke up to this morning!

We've had a really busy day today feeding five b&bers & changing beds & clearing up after them, all washing in & dried but I'm shattered tonight.

The Americans didn't come in until after 1am so you can't help but listen out for them so lack of sleep too doesn't help.
A quiet night tonight!

Three good things:
1. Lovely to have a clean house again, there was grass all over the stairs from the tractor pulling field.
2. Watered all the pots, they were looking decidedly dry.
3. I cleaned out the last of the chocolate ice cream pot from NZ visitors trip.
Such a different scene now the straw's been baled. A busy time for b&b- you must enjoy some down time after everything is tidy again.

What a great shot... the Farmer in Harry must be a bit chuffed when he sees this sight .. pleased to hear you have a more relaxing night tonight ...

You are too tolerant! I would make some latest time to come in. What on earth were they doing till 1am - chewing the grass?

This is a lovely scene - pale and soft colours!

A lovely rural shot. And I agree with Maggiemae # your b&bers.

@maggiemae @gijsje Ha ha no they were at the big tractor pulling event in the village. I knew where they were & it was no problem I never mind when people come in as sometimes here for weddings etc. The only thing was they hadn't been & dropped their luggage off, had no key & didn't know where the rooms were! If they had their women folk with them it wouldn't have arisen as they would have checked in! Was all,ok in the end but I was listening for them.

@julzmaioro yes we like to see this scene, all tidy & done in great weather! The black bales have been there for a while but Harry has been down & prodded them, he says they are still firm but birds have pecked holes in them! Slack farming, farmer in Thailand!

Such a lovely golden and rural scene . It really looks as if Autumn is nearly with us . A lovely composition Pat. Fav You have had a busy day - those men with their trails of grass on your stairs should have taken off their boots !!

Looks really good. All that hard work finished.
Hope you can catch up on some sleep tonight.

Lovely scene! Your b&b sounds very busy!
August 28th, 2017  
But these B&B guests need to be a bit more thoughtful!
