Zoom In Zoom Out #36

Another last minute ZIZO from me - just in time to join in with Helena's 36th week.  Hubby and I generally go for a walk around the village on a Sunday - it's a chance to chat quietly, get some fresh air, admire nature and get some exercise. 

Part of our route takes us through a very large field which this year is planted with corn ... of the maize variety!  It's prettier than we see in the greengrocers, with purple outer leaves and yellow tufts.  I think it's for cattle fodder rather than human consumption.

It's interesting to watch the crops grow week by week and always a shock to find that they've been harvested all of a sudden.  This week we picked blackberries from the hedgerows along the way.  I should have taken photos of my stained fingers - maybe next week's ZIZO?

lovely colours and I agree it is satisfying to watch a crop grow and change

Beautiful colours indeed! The ZI looks like a party hat :)

They look wonderfully exotic - hard to believe they are growing in the UK. Great close-ups.

I can't help coming over all Little House on the Prairie, looking at this.

I'm hoping I'm not too late for blackberries here and will find some at the weekend

Great photos! They've been cutting hay & gathering corn for a couple weeks here now.
