♪♪...Makes me feel fine,
blowin' through the
jasmine in my mind...♪♪

Come January the 12th, I will
have been a farmers wife for
19 years. Of those 19 years...
18 summers have been spent
harvesting wheat. The one year
I missed was when our son, Denton,
was born. That was a Thursday,
on June 17th 1993. We were home by
Fathers Day that following Sunday.
The next day our harvest began.
By mid week, I took Denton to the
harvest field for his first
experience as a wheat farmer. LOL!!
I cannot imagine summertime without
wheat harvest. This is a part of my
'visiting the seasons past' series
that I am concluding the year 2009
with.....

    An absolutely magnificent image, Jeana. I know the life of our country's farmers is not easy, but would you trade it for any other? In my next life...

This goes straight into my favorites, Jeana.

Ah! To feel a summer breeze would be great. Nicely composed with excellent detail...and the reference to Seals and Croft is a nice added touch. Nicely done!!!
