seedlings

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Gray skies move in again, but with the rain comes something of great beauty - the corn seedlings pop through the soil. The spots of green, perfectly spaced in the black topsoil are a work of art in themselves.

This is a good time of year. We're hoping for better weather and no repeat of last years drought.

Tomorrow we'll view what's happened to last years soybean field just down the road.

I noticed this yesterday driving through No. Plainfield. It was an official sign of spring for me - and a reminder that summer is around the corner! I wonder if we'll have early corn again this year.

Nicely captured undulation. You really are gifted with a camera.

Beautiful corn.
We will be in southern Illinois for a couple of days the first of June. I hope to capture a few pictures then.

Zanne... this tickled my tummy like driving over a gently rolling hill. I love the movement and impending growth.

What a pretty photo! Great pattern and movement contrasting nicely with the soft hazy atmosphere.
