Outdoor Wednesday  Kansas Wild Sunflowers and Wheat fields


Welcome to my FILs place.  A couple of weeks ago I shared some of the pictures from our trip home to help with harvest.  These are more from that trip.
Can you feel the breeze?  I say you're not in Kansas if the wind isn't blowing.




This was taken alongside the dirt road by my FIL wheat fields.


My hubby and the combine he worked with 

One of dads fields

It is said that Kansas is flat, that is true of the upper half of the state.
The family farm is in the area that is much more hilly.
These are called the 
Kansas Gypsum Hills 


I love these carved tree stumps on the old farm place shown below


This farm house isn't being lived in right now.
 Dad plants and harvests the fields for the 93 year old man who owns it for a percentage of the crop.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to a part of Kansas you might not have seen before.  

Blessings, Debbie

Kansas is a bit like Iowa, where I grew up ... lots of oats, corn and rolling hills. Nice pics!

I can relate to those pics. I hope the farmhouse doesn't sit vacant too long. They need so much work and attention. I absolutely hate when they get torn down from neglect. My husband grows corn and beans!

I grew up in Indiana, so all these images are near and dear!

I've never been to Kansas and very much enjoyed my "visit" through your eyes. The fields are so beautiful and the farmhouse is charming. I'll bet that was a lot of work! And hot! Thanks for visiting Cottage and Creek. Have a happy 4th of July weekend.
