Farmer Boys

What a gorgeous fall day. It was so inspiring I decided to turn two pictures from the day into a new blog header. (It took too long, but I am pleased with the results!)

Friends joined us on a trip to my father's farm. The temps were in the low 70's which is unusual and welcome for the last day in October in Pennsylvania. Even though the trees have passed their peak, there were some gorgeous colors. Special treats today were watching a combine harvest corn and off-load it into a large truck, seeing a steam powered tractor or possibly soybean roaster trucking down the road, walking through the corn field and picking up ears the combine left behind, throwing same ears into the combine auger, playing in the creek, finding "treasure", making "laurel" wreaths out of weeping willow branches and playing in a barn full of hay!

It was idyllic, and sharing it with friends made it all the better! (If you don't believe me just look at the picture of the boys!)
