The Fields of South Georgia

A few weeks ago on my trip to South Georgia I couldn't help but marvel at the different colors of the fields I passed. The land is very flat in this particular area and the soil is so different looking from the red clay soil where I live.
A field of onions. These are not Vidalia onions because they are not in the area defined by law and by the US Code of Federal Regulations.

Weeds

More weeds

We thought this might be oats.

Have you ever seen such pretty colored weeds? I imagine they have a name but I call them weeds.
Clover in a pecan grove.

Not sure what this yellow is.

Here you can see how sandy the soil is. We thought we were going to sneak up on this turkey.
But he spotted us and took off! These pictures were taken in Pierce and Appling Counties.

I would be interesting to see all those fields from the sky above. It must give a colorful patchwork of flowers,grasses and weeds, and different kinds of lands.I find the turkey funny!Is it wild? here, we find them only in farms..

Tina Leigh said...

judi said...

Hi Dot. Sure is getting pretty in your neck of the woods. That turkey has had someone sneak up on him before. Sounds like the drought may have broken over your way. Happy Easter. Pappy

I enjoyed looking at the fields and meadows.. and laughed at the turkey on the run...

Happy Easter Dot.. to you and all your loved ones

Judy said...

Wow Dot, you always get some pretty shots. I love the shot of the turkey taking off it gave me a chuckle this morning.

UP said...

I enjoyed taking this trip with you.

tina said...

That turkey is running for all he's worth!

Zaroga said...

Nice pictures, Dot. When I see a turkey it is walking in the woods and impossible to get a picture of.

Which area of South GA.

Rose said...

I call them weeds, too, but they are pretty! There is this pinkish-purple weed here that has the fields pretty. I keep wanting to find a place to stop, but seems like the best are along a busy highway.

lailani said...

Wonderful pictures - I love the neck of the woods I live in and you captured so much of it! That turkey is Great!

PERBS said...

The first time I head of red soil, we had traveled to Texas to see my married sister there. I did not care for it at all. I am sure those weeds to you have certain names and probably Katney could identify them. Ü

Jo-Ann said...

What beautiful fields -- it's still pretty wintery and brown in our area!

You'll have to check out my March 23 turkey post!

Carletta said...

Wow! I couldn't help but think of the song verse 'Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain," - gorgeous shots!

Spring turkey season starts here soon. I saw one in my backyard this week.

PJ said...

I love the fields, so sweet looking. That turkey must have taken a wrong turn somewhere to be out in the open alone! As for the Vidalias, since they're not in Vidalia are they labeled as "Vidalia-ish"?

happyone said...

Wow all of those weeds are just beautiful. Great series of pictures - I enjoyed looking at every single one. :-)

Daryl said...

Lovely weeds and the running turkey made me laugh ..

Jan said...

These are all wonderful, Dot. I love field like these, they remind me of my Dad, he always knew what all the plants were.

Tricia said...

Run, Run for your life!!!
I would welcome weeks that pretty in my yard! Love springtime!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Beautiful colors in all of the fields in South GA, Dot... I wouldn't call them weeds... How 'bout wild flowers? That makes them sound a little more special, don't you think???? ha ha

The red ones may be Indian Paintbrush --since we had them when I lived in Texas.

Gorgeous colors!!!! Thanks!
Hugs,
Betsy

Cindy said...

beautiful photos. Love the weeds.

Patty said...

I love the colors! We don't have anything that green or any color much up this way yet.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I've learned it's impossible to sneak up on turkeys. ;-) Te ;and is very flat, isn't it? I didn't know Vidalia onions had to grow in a certain area!

Pat - Arkansas said...

Love the "weeds" ... and the spooked turkey!

It never ceases to amaze me how different the soil can be from one area to another.

Wishing you a Happy Easter.

D said...

What great shots you captured!
Love the running turkey.
Those might be weeds, but maybe they're wildflowers! Either way, they're beautiful.

DeeMom said...

weeds SMEEDS the pictures are awesome

Turkey however needs more food


lol

AVCr8teur said...

Hope you had a great Easter. What a beautiful part of the country with those fields of wildflowers. Look at that turkey take off. :)

Thank you for your comment regarding the guy poking his head out of the limo. I just happened to look over and there he was.

Dick said...

Beautiful weeds, poor turkey but he got away.

NellJean said...

The red 'flowers' may be the seed heads of Red Sorrell, a weed. I can't be sure without seeing close ups. It is spectacular en masse, but not a desirable plant.

The yellow flowers are Wild Mustard, unmistakable noxious weed. Cattle won't eat it.

I think the grain is rye. Oats has a bunch of little seed heads on each stem, more flat looking. If not rye, then wheat. Rye is taller than wheat.

Judi said...

Your 'weeds' photo and clover photo remind me of Claude Monet's landscape paintings. Lovely.

thyme said...

Is that a turkey? I thought it was a mini-ostrich. It looks like the Roadrunner. I swear our turkeys are shorter and stockier. (It must be those Dutch thighs... :-D)

Hi
valium without prescription
Confusion, nervousness, nausea, diplopia, constipation, headache, hypotension, dysarthria, incontinence, jaundice, changes in sex drive and in salivation, slurring of speech, tremor, rash, urinary retention, irritability, vertigo, muscle cramps, insomnia are its unusual side effects.

Foods that acidify urine, nonetheless, can lead to a faster absorption and elimination of diazepam and therefore decrease drug activity and levels.
