In this romantic setting we are transported to a time and place where the meaning of "country neighbors" is beautifully apparent. The day's work for both man and wildlife is completed. The pickup is loaded and ready for a trip to town in the morning. The exhausted farmer will relax for a moment on the high porch to enjoy the sunset before heading for bed. The mallards swing in low for the last time this season. After a good night's rest they will begin their annual journey south. The old planter will stay where it is, hidden in the tall grass after many years of service. Off in the distance the country church offers a neighborly reminder of who, really, is in charge of nature's abundant gifts.
