I grew up in a big city full of high-rises, pollution, and noise. It wasn’t so bad when I was a child because we lived in the suburbs, but over the years the city grew and expanded to take over the suburbs as well. When I moved north of the city into the open countryside, I quickly realized how much of Mother Nature’s wonders I had been missing out on. At night I can stand outside and stare up into a star filled sky with no city lights to hamper the view, and during the summertime I can sit outside and listen to the birds, frogs, cicadas, and other critters as they make their music. I can drive along a deserted country road surrounded by farmer’s fields as far as the eye can see, watch the corn stalks blowing in the breeze, and breathe in nothing but fresh air (ok, and a little manure :)). I really am happy that I was able to raise my boys in such a beautiful area.
So, even though I already showed you my fifty shades of green this week, I found some pictures of corn fields that I took on our way to Lake Huron which I just found so beautiful that I decided to share more green with you today whether you like it or not LOL.
