After nearly a decade of drought in that part of the country a large, fully filled corn crop was truly a sight of beauty. That is a very genuine smile.

Times have changed

It is difficult to look at this without applying the morals of 2013, if you know what I mean. I am old enough to remember when we pulled ears of corn and shucked them by hand to have animal feed all winter. However, I have never seen anyone look at an ear of corn with such tenderness!

Oh what beautiful corn! (colorized)

All I can see is the sun and the bright sky and her joy!
