I KEEP FLIPPING between the three photos.
But I can’t choose a favorite.
I like them all.
I like the lines of the field and drive, how my eyes are drawn to follow that pick-up into the farmyard.
I like the muted tones of grey and blue and those splashes of red in truck and outbuildings.
I like the ribbons of greening grass trimming the driveway, the bare trees edging the farm site.
This rural scene, along Brown County Road 29 southeast of Morgan, pleases me for the memories it holds. Not of this farm, but of my childhood on the farm. My heart is happy every time I travel back to southwestern Minnesota, past the fields and farms, gravel roads and grain elevators…through small towns…
