Most of the time we all take for granted the fact we live right here in the USA…why does it take a special day like the 4th of July to open our eyes…you know I just look around my little are and see so many things that make me feel honored and blessed to live here.
In just a 5 mile radius I saw so many things that say Freedom and honor…I didn’t see a flag flowing in the breeze or a statue of a fallen soldier or read the Declaration of Independence…but they are things we get to see everyday BECAUSE OF FREEDOM. Just look around your town and you’ll see things differently.
Just look around and you will see what it means to live in our wonderful USA – a drive in the country and you can see fields of wheat, wild flowers, animals and old structures that were here before we were born.
We are so fortunate that we don’t look out on to war torn streets and fields…buildings torn apart from fighting…we see FREEDOM.
And we can even get in our cars and look at all these wonderful treasures we most of the time take for granted.
Sunday when we took a ride we saw field after field of patchwork Green Corn and Amber Winter Wheat
‘AMBER WAVES OF GRAIN’ …we have it in abundance!!
Every Winter Wheat field we went by had a different look…so pretty
Some fields were not cut and many were partially cut
Hope you enjoyed this trip around my little town – why I love farm land I don’t know but harvest time is such a great time of year
And now to introduce you to the newest Martinsen
