I believe this is the first time I have ever seen an actual Rice plant.

  1. Looks lovely! What a wonderful environment to spend the day. I can almost smell the dirt! I would loooove to smell some dirt right now! Love the pic of the man an little girl.

  2. I love the picture of the father and daughter. He looks like such a good dad.

    I have never seen a rice plant either. Such a humble plant that feeds the world. Well, not that particular plant but you know what I mean. 🙂

  3. I see you don’t use the potential of social
    websites like pinterest and facebook on your website. You can get huge traffic from social sites on autopilot using one useful app, for more info
    search in google for:
    Alufi’s Social Automation
