Featured August 20 2012 – SCENERY…..INVITE ONLY

Driving home yesterday I spotted the Mennonite men in the fields loading the wagons with the harvested sheaves of wheat. I inquired at the farmhouse if I could have permission to enter the fields and take photos – permission granted.

Due to religious beliefs some Mennonites prefer not to have their pictures taken so it’s always best to ask.

After talking to the lady of the house I made another family connection to my family tree.

    You have captured summer!!!!!! Awesome, awesome image … and it looks like they’re still doing the old fashioned “fodder shocks” as we used to call them … as opposed to those rather boring, rolled bales. I love this!!!!!!!!

  • I’m so HAPPY you likes this image Lois, thanks for the favor and nice comment…Jules

    A well captured image Julie, with pleasing light. Would love to come across a field of these. Would be a nice change from haybales. By the way, will these sheaves perchance be taken to “Sheaves Tower”? LOL Sorry, couldn’t resist that. :D ♥Ron♥

  • My morning chuckle Ron. They were actually doing the milling in the barn but I didn’t venture inside as it was very dusty. Thanks for your favour…Jules

    A few years ago, we drove through this area where the Mennonites live, we found it fascinating and in a way very peaceful. This is another great capture of their way of life, wow !

  • Thank you Elfriede for your favour. This area is no more then 30 minutes from where I live and I love driving around the back-roads to enjoy the vast farmlands and peaceful settings. Did you by chance get to visit the Farmer’s Market…Jules
