Here We Go...

What do you do when the rye grass gets this high?

Do you play in it?

I remember when I was a little girl, I thought it was great fun to crawl through the high grass, making "rooms" and "hallways" in my pretend house.  Needless to say, when my Dad noticed what I was doing, he put a stop to it right away.  You can't mow grass that's been trampled down!  Oops!

Murphy and Snickers think it's fun to lick the water off the thick blades of grass...

Jim would rather mow it...

It'll soon be baled into round bales and fed to the cows.

Here we go...spring is officially in full swing!


  1. How lush and green!! Bet the cows will love those bales.

  2. Oh that does look so inviting. We are not thinking of cutting yet but planting will be starting this weekend. Hug B

  3. we've had good rains this spring so ours is getting really high, too. i notice where the dogs and coyotes have tromped through or laid down. your pups are too cute!

  4. Wow Alica, your rye grass is high and lush. Our feels are still drying up from the high water. Things are starting to green up fast though. We still have our cows inside the barn.

    Have a nice weekend.

  5. That is just beautiful. I love when there are fields like that. That was the way it used to look around here every spring. I love the happy looks on the dogs faces.

  6. You are cutting hay, I can't believe it! I also can't believe it's currently 60* and we are preparing for 6-12" of snow. Yes, the weather man says white stuff is headed our way. Sounds like it will be a weekend storm and gradually warm back up next week.

    Happy hay baling!

  7. I I can't believe baling hay this early!

  8. I loved doing that as a kid. I remember one time coming face to face with a huge wolf spider on its web. Needless to say, that road was closed. Thanks for those good memories.


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
