The Queen of Sheave-ah

Kindly direct yer attention to the top of both sidebars. Amazing strawberry corn fer sale from a prim bloggie fren and a hollyhock seed giveaway from another bloggie fren. That pup made from crysanthemums is from Japan. I'm going to try it this fall.

From a vintage photographic postcard, a young woman dons a classic robe and strikes a pose while bringing in the sheaves.

Real wheat is quite interesting. Where I lived in the Pacific Northwest, bald eagles would walk along behind the threshers and gorge themselves on the lil' mice scampering in panic. A bald eagle is an extremely large bird, larger than you'd think if you hadn't seen 'em up close. With brilliant yellow talons and beaks. Their feet are much larger than a man's hand. And they are almost as tall as a kindergartner.

    Nice graphic! I am sure those Eagles did gorge them selves! We have some around here but I have never seen one that closely- they are big though form what I have seen. That mum pup is adorable!!

  • Home and Heart

    When I lived on Camano you could see eagles on the beach. They can be huge! Darlin' pic too!

    I'm humming: Bringing in the Sheaves -- la la la. I would love to see a bald eagle up close. Out west I once saw one flying, but it was far away.

    Hi Holly! I've been a bad little donkey and not posted all summer (on most of my blogs). But, here I am! I have so enjoyed your cute little pics and observations on life! I, too, have had the horror of discovering a moustache. And, me - the once captain of my high school girls track team - cannot keep up with my young teen's fast pace either!

  • Amrita

    The photo reminds me of Ruth of the Old Testament, who gleaned barley from Boaz ' fields.I love her story.

    Thank you for your good wishes and encouraging words Holly. The worst is over, although it has left a bad taste in my mouth figuratively speaking.It will take time to recover completely and that I hav e made clear to the people involved/.

  • Denise Marie

    She's pretty cool.

  • ^..^Corgidogmama
