morning ride, and other things
When I saddled up before six this morning, Blue waited patiently for me to get the bucket I use as a mounting block in place.
This was my view of the sun coming up over the river bottoms.
For my Wordless Wednesday entry on Blogger yesterday, I used before and after flood pictures. Here's one I didn't do. What a difference three months makes, eh?
When I ride in the bottoms, I see soybeans to my right and to my left. The world is just one big sea of bean plants there.
In normal years, it's a patchwork quilt of corn and soybeans; but this year the floodwaters didn't dry up in time for corn to be planted. Soybeans don't take nearly as long to come to maturity.
And there you have it, another morning ride taken before the temperatures start climbing toward 95 degrees.
