Just east of town

Another view of the spring fields off of Old Farm Rd.

One of the great pleasures of living in Lexington is that only a few minutes' drive from the center, in almost any direction, takes one into some of the most beautiful country in Virginia. It is even possible to walk out along a few of the less-traveled roads, without resorting to a car at all. The scene above can easily be reached by foot (if you like walking).

It reminds me of the old farmer's fields around here in Ohio where I live. Where, along the edges of the roads where the stones collected we could see the Kildeer birds trying to trick us with a wing droop to follow them instead of standing near their nest of eggs on the ground.

We had thunderstorms last night and lots of rain and lightening.

I never imagined Virginia to look like this. Thanks for educating me.
