These silk threads are emerging from a stunted, spiky corn plant. Will a cob of any use be formed here? Please pray for the many farmers who depend on a corn crop to feed their livestock or to sell a harvest.

As far as one can see in this hilly field, the corn plants are in a classical stressed "pineapple" formation. These stunted plants are now tasseling as well. Will my brother (whose farm is pictured in the upper left corner) be able to even use any part of the corn to feed his elk?

Taken in the same field as yesterday's photo, it's bad enough to see stunted, spiky corn leaves, but even worse when you have stunted plants that are drying up before your eyes. I doubt this field will give any type of yield.

Despite the drought conditions here in Wisconsin, my mother's careful devotion has enabled a large percentage of the flowers around the house to survive. Here are some close-ups of a few of them.

Another field photo, just on the other side of the large hill. This region of Wisconsin has a landscape influenced by the glaciers that once went through the area. Makes great sledding and fast (downhill) biking!

On an early morning walk by my parents' house in Wisconsin, I stopped to enjoy this view - a golden field of wheat, undulating in the wind, set against a brilliant, blue sky. Aside from the trees and grass, the scene reminded me of the massive Sahara Desert sand dunes in the southern part of Tunisia.
Seeing such fields of grain is visible proof of God's bounteous blessings.
