Corn & Black Dirt

P1030588Illinois is flat.

The trees get in the way of a long horizon.

But the soil is some of the most fertile in the world, and that means green…everything and anything grows, anywhere.

Big deal you say?

Yeah, but when you live where brown is the dominant color, you come to miss the green.

In the next few days expect to see little more here than pics of my travels in the St. Louis environs.  Those pics may look like no big deal to you… but they’re a feast for the eyes to this traveler.

Happy weekend!

    Enjoy the lush green St. Louis of your youth, my friend! Looking forward to working with you further in the not too distant future!
    Warmest wishes and Godspeed.

    Dave, enjoy!! I grew up in Indiana, and there’s nothing quite like the flat expanses of farmland stretching as far as the eye can see. I find it really beautiful. Even though I live in the gorgeous PNW now, and wouldn’t trade that for anything, I still love a sunmertime visit to the Midwest. Hope you have a great time!
