#30daysofbiking Day 28: fields

To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before and which shall never be seen again.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

fields of red clover

Road ride today.  I wan’t quite confident in the weather to be rain-free.  So no pannier, no dry bag, and hence – no DSLR today, just the pocket point-and-shoot Lumix.  Which I came to regret, because my eyes were popping … the fields were amazing today.  On fire with red clover and yellow buttercups.  And a few daisies.

A pretty peaceful and quiet ride, one that I wished I could have extended a few miles longer.  But it was another tennis day for Grant, and against one of the tougher teams in the district, so I really wanted to be there to cheer them on.  (Guess I didn’t cheer loud enough; defeat.) 😦

I’ll leave the rest of the ride story to the pictures … not much I can really say.  The fields – you’d just have to see it; photos could never capture the scope of the endless color.

a few daisies ...

... a few clouds

taking a quick phone call at a country church...

... fields of buttercups

... and endless red clover

Now I believe that lovers should be draped in flowers and laid entwined together on a bed of clover and left there to sleep, left there to dream of their happiness.
