Weekly Photo Challenge: Change; a Post Script

I had originally intended to post this last night, but in a moment of Friday night needing to get out of the box, posted something a little different.  Now in the light of Saturday morning, we continue with our regularly scheduled programming .

Seasonal changes in the fields in the community where I live are a constant reminder of  change

When I hear the drone of the tractor,  I know change is happening out there

Beauty, seeming emptiness, fruitfulness,  emptiness, a return to beauty

Change is cyclical, leading to growth and beauty.

    I think that this is a pretty exciting change – from bare ground to one teeming with life. 🙂

    A beautiful set of photos, Angeline. Yes, many sights show change is in the air but, as you noted, there are sounds indicating that change is here. The tractors, the songbirds’ return, thunder. Change is all around.

  10. To every season … what change could be more meaningful to our lives than that which occurs in planted fields? Lovely.

  11. Ummm – yes, the beautiful cycle (though I must say the yellow of a mustard seed field is more appealing than the ripening corn, no matter how much more useful it is!). 🙂

      I so agree abut the mustard, but I think it would dry out of its own accord if not plowed.

      • You’re right, of course. That made me think of Mum and pruning the rose bush she insisted on growing in the semi-tropics. We would agree it was looking spindly and in need of a good prune and a rest and she’d say “as soon as it’s finished flowering” and of course it’d never stop flowering and months would go by and the rose bush got more and more straggly and ugly, but still bearing a flower or two she couldn’t bear to cut it down …

        You’ve made me laugh ( and almost cry) with this story. I think your Mum and I would have been good friends. It’s taken me a lot of years to let go of a plant. Now I just tell it I’m sending it back to its source as I put it into the recycle bin.
