More Flooded Fences

It's just that time of year, still with numerous temporary ponds in the fields.  Before I get too far behind the seasons I have a few more pictures of fences around the valley.  They're ubiquitous and we take them for granted, but when you see the cattle out in the summer you realize they're important.

In some places it looks like the water flooding these fields will take so long to disappear that it will delay planting.

I'm sure some farmers will soon be frustrated at not being able to get out on the land.

Can't resist adding a photo from earlier in the month when we had our April snowfall.

And this one from the winter.  It's almost unbelievable that we had 2-3 feet of snow on the level here, and it's all gone - though the stream down the watershed here is certainly roaring.

  4. Such pretty scenes, even in the snow. Ours is pretty well gone here (our yard is bare) except the odd drift along the hedgerows and some snowbanks in parking lots. It's hard to believe it was as high as it was a month ago and now it's gone. Makes me happy. :)

  5. I like the colors in your first shot. Yes, it's amazing how much changes in a month's time.

  7. Great fence photos... I especially like the ones with snow piled up all around them. BUT--I'm sure you are GLAD that your snow has mostly all gone...

    Hugs,

  8. Goodness no wonder you had flooding with all that snow melting. I'm not sure which is worse, the snow or the water. Hopefully you'll be all dry soon. Great shots though.

  12. With all that snow I guess you have to expect fields of water for a while.
    Great photos.
