It doesn’t need to be a crop, there are plenty of fields with wild flowers too.

The scourge of the hay fever season here in the PNW!

We pull those out by the root at the ranch when the ground is wet.
Otherwise they get the brushhog. During the summer months.

Well...., they are plants, and it's a field full of them, and they are flowering, I don't recall seeing where it was specified it had to be something ornamental.

Nice pic.
Does the hood on top of your car help with front down force? Laughing
Sorry you were a little late on your post.

Come on folks. This in not that hard of a challenge.
Don't try to convince us that you never get a refreshment while driving you VW.

Took my beetle to the local brewery today.
A new jubilee beer came out to celebrate 900 years of Norbertines


You see my beetle at the Abbey in Heverlee (Belgium), called Abdij van het Park (Park Abbey)
They started brewing again just over 1 year ago.

The brewery itself is further in the background.

Hey mid-west teams. This challenge is right up your alley.
Us west coast folks don't have many water towers out here.

BTW Zandman. Beautiful pics. Your 67 is lovely too.
Thank you for playing along.

67rustavenger, I drove by two this evening in the Vanagon. One in North Portland. The other on Hwy 84 near NE 122nd. We got them. Just need to find them. I would’ve taken a photo if my IPhone would take pictures at night.

Check this out 67rustavenger, maybe you recognize these Wink I’m just being a d|€k Laughing

http://pdxwatertowers.blogspot.com/2016/09/blog-post.html

Zandman pictures are fantastic. Applause Applause
