Looking as good as it gets!  by happypat

Looking as good as it gets!

The maize in the fields is looking good & we expect them to come & start harvesting this week. Weather forecast good all week & Harry was told they were coming anytime.
Shame we can't keep it looking as good as it does now but crops don't stand still.

Three good things:
1. Over 11 million of us tuned into the final episode of The Bodyguard last night. I still don't understand all the ins & outs but my word it was tense! I have been told that NZ has been showing trailers so you are in for a treat!
2. I popped in to have my new specs adjusted this morning.
3. A very proud new father pushing a very tiny baby in Tesco this morning.
fabulous composition - love that sky!

Good landscape

A lovely landscape. Yes, Bodyguard certainly kept us on the edge of our seats.

A stunning landscape for you to look out over. I'm sure it is constantly changing. I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't understand all the ins and outs of the Bodyguard, but as you say it was very addictive and so tense.

@valpetersen Thank you Val.
September 24th, 2018  
Hope they get the maize harvested before the weather breaks.. I've seen the first of the paddocks getting worked up here ready for planting..
Look forward to seeing Bodyguard as not much else on telly at moment.

@beryl I nearly called it that Beryl but think I put that last year! The fields look so tidy & well maintained at the moment!

@brennieb He was a very small baby Brenda, not more that a couple of weeks old I would think. Yes colder at night now, heating on tonight!

@taffy @mave Thank you both ladies!
September 24th, 2018  
@carolmw It did, I was a bit confused at times though!
September 24th, 2018  
@busylady Yes you're right the view is changing all the time, this will look very different in a week I would think.

A beautiful country scene. We have had the same great weather.

bep
Your view is beautiful.
There's a huge maize field just in front of our house, so our view is restricted. I hope it soon will be harvested.
September 24th, 2018  
@gijsje Yes it does get tall Bep. We are ok here as we are higher than the fields. You will feel a bit hemmed in when it's at it's tallest!

@quietpurplehaze lovely week ahead so they forecast!
September 24th, 2018  
@julzmaioro It's a complicated story but it's fascinating to watch...the first episode draws you in! Hoe they get this maize in before the weather changes...no muddy roads hopefully!
September 24th, 2018  
Beautiful shot - the sky's amazing and sets off the colour on the ground perfectly. Love it

@valpetersen @brennieb @mave @carolmw @busylady @julzmaioro @quietpurplehaze @gijsje @filsie65

Thank you all & I took this photo just in time! Harry has just been out to shut the hens in & there are tractors all over the fields with their lights on chopping & carting these maize fields!
September 24th, 2018  
@beryl @taffy As above!
September 24th, 2018  
it's a perfect view enjoy the harvest Pat
September 24th, 2018  
There will be the rumble of big machines all day soon. Have seen some being harvested under lights at night too! Farmer will be pleased! Photo of new glasses - with a person too?
September 24th, 2018  
A beautiful view!
September 25th, 2018  
@maggiemae They stopped collecting quite early last night, just wondering if someone came out & complained! No need to be going up & down all night as the weather forecast is good all week.

Great photo! HDR at it's best.

This really shows off the huge area to be harvested. Josh is gearing up ready for silage making and getting the early crop of maize in the ground.
September 25th, 2018  
Wow. Stupendous crop
September 25th, 2018  
happened to my following of you. I’ll fix it now
