Have you ever seen anything so green?
The other day, intending to take pictures of the Court House but not seeing anything particularly inspiring, I decided to drive further down "below" the Court House. We say "below" because the further you get from the Court House, the further below sea level you go. I just made that up, but it is actually not far from the truth.
Anyway, I took a turn down the public landing right before Williams Wharf road. The instant I turned down the lane I stopped in my tracks and was astonished at the abundance of scenes to photograph. This was one of them.
Soybeans are a very popular crop in Mathews. Right now, they are bushy green, and they're everywhere. In the fall, they will dry up and turn a crispy brown just before they are harvested.
According to the Visit Mathews website, "There are 61 farms in the county of an average size of 101 acres. The principal crops are corn, wheat and soybeans."
That's a whole lot of soybeans, and a whole lot of green.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Saturday, as I did, and that your Sunday is even better.
