  3. Oh wow. This brought memories to me. We used to visit relatives in Colorado every year and I do remember the silos in the tiny town of Akron. Miss those trips. Love the sunflower pics. Nice!!

  4. The best sugar cookies, in the world, I think, are those with whole grains of sugar coating the top. It is a hard thing to do because a hot steaming cookie will melt the sugar and took cold and the sugar falls off. There is an in between point when sugar should be applied and left. Then when the cookie goes into your mouth you can taste more sugar than cookie.

    Your picture looks like some farmer can afford to hold his grain until the price goes up and he can make more money. That many silos is a sure sign that somebody is making a decision like that.

  9. Fascinating. This is so far from my own life (and Annapolis) that I can't even explain how it works.

  12. Benath such clouds, they do look fragile to me.

  13. Aaah....I love the country: wide open spaces where you can see the big puffy clouds as you cruise by the silos. Reminds me of my days in South Dakota.

  14. It is the distance of the silos and the clouds that really speak to me in this photo. Very cool.

  16. Ok, my husband is the master of jamming stuff into our car or trailer. I LOVE them and want one for a staircase. I saw one of these "staircase silos" in a fabulous barn home that I love.

    ALWAYS fun peeking into your fishbowl.

    Love and happy weekend,

  17. This to me says "quintessential summer" as it reminds me of so many road trips through Kansas during the summer!

  18. What an iconic shot. We don't really have grain silos like this in Scotland. Maybe a single small one at a farm.
