Oh how I love this view!

Oh how I love this view!
I've always loved making hay in this old- fashioned way. We did it last time 2011 ( but I think this photo is from 2010), after that we have stored our hays in big bales covered with several layers of plastic. It's ugly and non- romantic, but that's the only way to make our hays last over the winter. The reason why we have to store them that way, is because autumns here have turned so long because of climate chancing and humidity is too high to store hay loose. It's sad, but reality.

Thanks! When I look at this photo now, it makes me miss those sunny warm summer days so much! Next summer we MUST make at least small part of our hays in this lovely method! Will take more pics then!

These sure look nicer than the "tractor eggs". And it was so much fun to play in the barn where the hay was gathered...

Exactly! I've even slept in hays many many nights! It was fantastic: always so exciting to listen mouses scritching somewhere below ( some years our haystacks were 2-3 meters high) but the loveliest it was, if it was raining. Loved to sleep in sinking haystack and listen the sound of the rain in metal roof ♥ It was so calming, and I think I never slept as deeply elsewhere in my life.

Love the scene and the processing..and I agree about the loss of the traditional way our fields used to look...

Thank you, lovestruck. It makes me sad to think how much we've lost within the development of technology, when everything is all the time more and more effective. Too many people are feeling themselves useless. I still believe that most of the good things in life are born in peaceful, non- stressed circumstances.

OH WoW OM this is just fantastic! I have never seen hay like this before. And what a great picture. (Thanks for posting.)

On a side note....It reminds me of Cousin Itt from "The Adams Family" a TV show we watched here in the states back in the 60s. lol www.sitcomsonline.com/photopost/showphoto.php/photo/263300

Thank you, Karen. I will check our older paper photos ( well paper photos are the only I can browse anymore as all digital photos are gone. The good thing is that I've had digital camera only since 2009, so it's only 5 year's photos) if I can find some haymaking pics from 90's and scan them. I think there must be some quite nice there.
