Today by way of an intermission from Two Go Pottering About In Pembroke, I’m back on home ground here – the field behind our house just after the wheat was cut in early September. It’s nice to recall the glorious sunshine too (since we returned from Wales it has been wet, wet, wet, the country locked inside jet stream weather effects). Also I thought I’d combine Becky’s line squares with Patti’s challenge to fill the frame. So here goes: bales, stubble, light and shadow, false horizons, landscapes and cloudscapes, textures and colour blocks. And lots of stalks.

Amazing clouds Tish. Hope your wet weather is behind you by now! It does make your beautiful fields grow though 😊
Thanks, Tina. I wish we were free of the rain. I think we’re in full-on wetness for days to come yet.
Both challenges perfectly executed. It’s been a bit full on down here too! Will I ever get the rest of my bulbs planted!
Thanks, Jude. I got a few bulbs in on Saturday between showers, but there seems no sign of a proper let up any time soon.
Frames nicely filled, and plenty of stalky lines, Tish!
Thanks, Sue. I’m getting very fond of the stalky lines in the field, though today they are looking rather soggy.
Oh, it’s pretty soggy here at the moment!
A bit fed-up making.
Those clouds are beautiful. Lovely images for both challenges Tish.
Now those are some lines! Hope it wasn’t too dusty when they were cutting it
It was v. dusty – a big cloud of same across this end of town.
ugh not so good . . . but what they left behind makes fabulous photography!
I’m not complaining and some of the harvesting trash has been finding its way into allotment compost bins 🙂
Hee hee, love it!
Lovely light on the clouds and I like the lines of the field shots. I just got back from France a few days ago and it rained almost every day of the three weeks. They’re so short of rain that I couldn’t feel bad about it, but those few nice days were SO appreciated.
What a shame to have so much rain. September in France is usually a lovely time of year.
That part of France, Franche-Comté, is still close to three months behind in needed rain even with all the rain that came while I was there, so I can’t feel bad about it, even though it made our walks and travels quite different.
Great pictures, Tish
Thank you, Ian.
These are interesting photos. No. 2 is my top choice. I like the way the lines in the barley lead the eye through the picture to the sky beyond.
Thanks Suzanne. I love this field, though I would also like to resuscitate it after years of chemical abuse and compaction.
Wouldn’t that be wonderful. I am becoming increasingly aware of how ‘de-natured’ commerically produced food seems right now. After 60+ years of adding chemicals to the soil it seems dead. I’m trying to grow as much as I can this summer though working out how to do that with limited water and nightly attacks from possums is the challenge.
Watched this little permaculture film this week. Thought I might try a couple of beds at the allotment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oy_x5rXq19g
Yes, permaculture is very popular with those who have the space and know they can garden on the same spot long term. I grow organic and often use no dig methods myself. 🙂
A really interesting collection. I especially like the simplicity of the hay bale, and the one below it.
It was great fun wandering round the field at different times of the day looking for the best arrangements.
What beautiful autumn fields, Tish. Lovely! They fill the frame beautifully.
Thank you, Patti.
Lots and lots and lost of stalks! 😀 … the clouds shot is magnificent! 😀
Thank you kindly, Widdershins.
