Wednesday Wonder- make hay while the sun shines

Sometimes when I pick my Wednesday wonders I pick what I think could not possibly have purpose in art as a medium and most of the time I am gratefully wrong.
I do not know why Hay popped in to my head but it did and here it goes.

This picture is from Amazing Art, another website to visit again and again.
This link will take you to their main page.
This picture and the one below come from them.

This is the page for amazing hay art

One more straw, hay!

Hay there even is a a tourist attraction in
Forkland, Alabama - Jim Bird's Hay Bale Art. No hay!!

And just so you know, I got this from

"Hay is dried grass.
Straw is the dried stalks of harvested cereals, such as wheat, barley and oats."

Hay, I knew that!!
Well, I gotta bale!!!

Hay, have a great day will ya???


  1. Thanks Kallan, I thought it was fun!
    I am so glad somebody else might enjoy it.

  2. These are right up my alley! I will have to spend some time looking at your links, maybe I will be makin' hay art someday! Thanks Marie.

  3. Marie!!! You just keep finding the best stuff! How clever is that.

  4. Wow, Marie - this is really fabulous! I'm going to have to head up to Killington - although I think the hay would probably kill my hubby (he's really allergic). Theresa

  5. Oh my god, marie: and i thought a garden scarecrow was pretty cool!

    AND is THIS the reason i have such cravings to slirp my cherrios through a straw in my own garden?

    OR why i desire to roll in the grass sometimes while I'm pinching back the basil?

    such important questions: all because of you. ♥

  6. How Fantastic... I did not know! Thank you so much for sharing. This is great!
