For weeks, I have gone by this field of wildflowers and admired it, but I never had my camera with me. When I noticed the farmer was beginning to cut it (I have a feeling the flowers were being baled along with the tall grass to become food for cattle), I went home and grabbed [...]
It seems like only last week or last month but it has been a lot longer. It has been a year since I paddled my kayak on Lake Yonah.
