13th blog anniversary: Walking the hills in autumn of 2017

Yeap, 28th October marks the 13th anniversary of my blogging activities…
The updates are less frequent compared to earlier days, but I plan to continue blogging as long as I can…

Had been enjoying early morning walks in the hills for the past few months…
The views, the fresh air, the encounters with wild life are just some of the little joys that greet me on each and every occasion…

Autumn is the time when the paddy grains begin to ripen…
Several families living in the hamlet adjacent to where I live, are part-time paddy farmers…

Like the vegetable plots in my garden, the paddy fields are susceptible to raids by wild boars…
The paddy farmers use iron netting to fence up their fields to prevent the boars from coming in…

Wild boars have this un-welcomed tendency to wreck extensive damage to crops…
As a hobbyist-gardener, I have had my fair share of experiences with them…
Autumn is the hunting/trapping season for boars…
On one of my walks, I came across one boar that walked into a trap…

The undulating terrain offers a perfect scene for photo-shooting…

Along-side the paddy fields, the villagers grow other crops like yam, sweet potatoes, okra…

The ripening paddy grains in one of the fields…

I find the harvesters to be somewhat ‘cute’ looking…
Compared to the machines we have in Kedah, Malaysia (my hometown), they are quite tiny…
But I guess they are well suited to work in the small terraced fields…

This bright spot in the grass attracted my attention as I was heading back in one of those walks…
A farmer must have found out that he/she had produced too much for consumption…
