Making Hay—2nd cutting

Thanks to the recent rains, the grass grew enough to justify a fall cutting. We have hay down on Smith Farm, the Brown Place and Polecat Creek Farm.

I took this picture this morning when we sent to see if the hay on Polecat Creek Farm was dry enough for John to rake. (It wasn't.) I like the way the falling leaf hangs suspended over the hayfield. Only the leaf wasn't falling. So what was it doing? (Answer below.)

The leaf was suspended from a spider web.

Sometimes things are not what they seem.
