November corn...


"The wind that makes music in November corn is in a hurry...



"November Corn"
Bucks County, Pennsylvania




...Stalks hum, the loose husks whisk skyward in half playing swirls,
and the wind hurries on...
a tree tries to argue, bare limbs waving.
But there's no detaining the wind."

-Aldo Leopold






Day #12.  November 12th - I am thankful for the first bit of snow we got.  Not because I like snow, quite the opposite.  But if I didn't have the cold of the snow in November, I do not think I'd truly appreciate the warmth of the sun in June.

Day #13.  November 13th - I am grateful for mercury glass.  Yep, mercury glass.  And that HomeGoods obviously understands my love....and is very willing to supply my habit.


Here's where I'm linking up today ..."The Party's On"

Please join me on Sundays for Song-ography.
This week's song title is Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World".

  5. True, the sound of wind through the dried stalks is like none other, same for wind in the vast fields of wheat... love your choice of B&W! Thank you for coming by to share on Rurality Blog Hop #40!

  9. The 'leaning' stalks are representative of the 'lean' days to come. Love that you didn't try to doctor it up with color♫♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/out-the-window/

  13. What a beautiful shot. There is something so majestic and yet so eery about the "silence" of a corn field. When I was much younger, our property used to be next to a corn field and I was always so spooked by the sounds you could hear in the night and I would never venture out into the field either. That may also be part of the reason I have never gotten up the courage to try a corn maze. :)
