In the meantime, Richard headed to town to pick up straw.  The most significant purpose in the moment is to put straw down over the seed he has just planted on the pond banks.  We need to do what we can to slow down erosion which means sending soil into the pond which is empty in the moment.

Melanie helped her Dad with the 1st load.  When he came back from purchasing the second load, she insisted:  "Mom, you have to see this."  So she and I climbed aboard the back of the pick-up and sat on the hay bales.  Richard was driving. 

I have to admit that this is the 1st time we have had a hayride here.  We went straight to the Cane Field and thoroughly enjoyed being at the height of the stalks.  Gee, are they tall.  And those Seedheads are just beginning to turn a darker brown.  We made our way to the Pond and back out next to the Garden.  I had camera in hand and took adventure of photo ops from a completely different view.
