my view of the natural world

The patterns of farming

Farmers are generally thought of as fairly prosaic people, not given to fancy thoughts of art.  Yet, the patchwork patterns of ploughing  a paddock give rise to an artscape.  Is it Life imitating Art or Art imitating Life?

      Thanks MJ, I’d love to go flying over the land also. I envy the crop planes when they work this area.

  3. It would make a beautiful flower garden with lots and lots of bird houses.
    OK, don’t say it, one can be allowed to dream once in a while. :D

      Absolutely! The hill would be much better covered in wattles, and other native plants:-) Then the birds would be happy and the other native animals would have a home as well. In the time I’ve been here, that paddock had never been ploughed until this week – another sign of it time for me to move on perhaps…
