All rolled up

We’ve just returned from a visit to the prairies in Alberta (Calgary where two of our children live).  As we drove around the countryside, we saw the signs of fall in the crops that are

All Rolled Up140

Very different from the small square bales that we used to throw around when we were kids – can’t pick these up and toss them on the back of a wagon!

Another favorite site of mine is the grain elevators – fast becoming extinct we’re told:136

And then there are the donkeys – more commonly seen in northern Alberta, but these fellows were working hard:138

As beautiful as BC’s mountains are, there’s a glorious beauty in the prairies and the products that help to feed us and keep the economy going.  And did you notice the sky – even on the day that it snowed (yes, snow!!) we still saw some blue sky and felt the warmth of the sun for a part of the day.

Happy fall.          Blessings, Peg
