Day 75 - The Rice Paddie

This is what my neighborhood calls a lagoon. It's actually an old rice paddie. My neighborhood is part of the old Merriweather land grant - 5000 acres stretching 15 miles or more along the river.

For a while it was a rice plantation with five very large paddies. The old flood gates for them are still here.

Here's a close up!!

Thanks for looking!!

That's very cool that you live by a rice paddy! I've never actually seen one, but I'd like to. Your painting is so pretty and has such depth to it. Love your sky!
