Peak Purple

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

In some of the farm fields around me springs arrival is celebrated by emergence of a purple carpet. Not all fields will have this having been freshly tilled preparing for planting. Likely corn. Other fields were prepared  a month or more ago for grasses or wheat. The fields yet to be worked for crops are far from barren as the Henbit flowers in a pink-purple color. From a distance the sight is very nice:

Soon the field I took a picture of will be prepared for crops and the Henbit will be gone. Thats ok as the flowers don’t last all that long. But while their at peak color the fields have a wonderful color to them.

This is the first of a series of posts. While Earth Day was Sunday April 22nd celebrating the place we live on for only one day seems to short. I’m going to observe Earth week.
