I hate when I write a post, like I did the other evening, intending to post it the next morning after I have reviewed, chosen, edited and then inserted the photos I took to go with it! But, I accidentally hit PUBLISH instead of SAVE DRAFT.
What I didn’t hate was just giving it a sigh, closing my laptop, retreating to my freshly laundered bed and saying to myself, ‘My blog-reading friends will understand. They might not even notice there were no pictures.’
The ornamental corn has done much better than I thought it was going to do. It is beautiful, even the imperfect ears. Each ear is a surprise to me! What colors will it hold? I have tried to find a pattern, based upon the color of the husks, but haven’t figured out one yet. I love peeling back the husks to see what God’s paintbrush designed.
Some of this corn grew crazy tall! Thanks to all the rain we had this summer, I suppose.
After I pull the ears, I break the stalks over.
After a row is done, I stack the stalks so I can take them from the patch at Mom’s to my house for the animals.
Happy is a creature of routine. He loves this routine.
Whoops, got distracted by more artwork:
Oh and did I mention that Bernice, the sow, is “bellied-down” and due to have her pigs today!?
Back to that beautiful corn….as I work, I like to let it dry a bit and I have it, well, coming out of my ears! 😉
A double ear! —
Welcome beautiful October!!
Don’t you just LOVE that?
