Last Gasp of Winter Along Harshman Road

[updated to include image, which failed the first time]

I don't know why the farmer keeps this solitary oak  tree right out there on the boundary between two fields.  After all, the shade it brings plus the hassle of plowing around it make it a detriment and inconvenience.

But it's beautiful, so that's why I think it remains.  Farming is not always about profit maximization, it's also about the beauty of growing things.

Monday's snow is just about history.  Let's hope that's it for the winter of 2013-2014.
