      Annie, you are the only one out of seven visitors, so far, to have indulged me. LOL! So you were able to really take in the full scope of this view. Thank you!

      Winter was pretty harsh this year. Not that it was over-cold, but it was l-o-n-g and DULL. This view, on the way back from seeing the Mountain Farmlet, was one of those moments that just take your breath away. And of course it is always better in real life! πŸ˜€

          But they don’t really get a winter anyway though, right?
          (Plus we were stuck in March weather right through April and now, within the space of a few days, have been thrown head-first into June… totally BIZARRE weather anymore.):

            Actually, Texas does get winter – depending on the year. This one wasn’t so bad, but I’ve seen snow at Christmas, terrible ice storms and two-week stints of freezing weather. It’s never more than a couple of months, though, which makes it more bearable!

    • Lynda says:

      Deb, yes, it is this years crop! It’s rape seed, or ‘Canola’ to you, and I seem to recall reading that they are related. πŸ™‚

      • Deb Weyrich-Cody says:

        Yes, the powers that be didn’t like the original name and changed it to Canola – a combination of “Canadian” and “Mazola*” (oil).
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brassica_rapa
        Also according to Wikipedia, “The word β€œrape” in rapeseed comes from the Latin word β€œrapum,” meaning turnip. Turnip, rutabaga, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard, and many other vegetables are related to the two natural canola varieties commonly grown…”

    it’s beautiful! and thanks to the comment before this one, i now know what it is! how beautiful! does it make you feel like bolting into the scene and running through the fields like a child? it’s truly pastoral and poetic and beautiful!

    • Lynda says:

      It never even crossed my mind, Lisa. To do so would have cut a path through the loveliness and spoiled the view. Besides, it was squelchy mud underneath that sea…

      Uh-oh, have I spoiled it for you now?

    Loved the “big view” when I peeked earlier. Actually (uh-oh, here it comes) I saw it as meringues floating on a sea of custard. Then, I got with the program and saw it as islands in the stream. Of course, that reminded me of this! Dolly and Kenny are fine, but this is better!

  3. Littlesundog says:

    We have a lot of Canola fields here too! Aren’t they just gorgeous? Good job getting the horizon just right. That’s an easy one for me to flub up! I’m too busy looking at the pretty flowers to catch my tilting horizon!!

So how about that? Go on; say something!
