Symbolic Wheat

 

Stalks of wheat from the State Seal of North Carolina (below). Why wheat? I don't know. Our climate is not wheat-friendly. PS: The dark stains are from the rain.

It's very nice, Larry!
Indeed, why wheat?
Larry Bliss: Well, this is embarrassing. It turns out that winter wheat is indeed grown in the mountains, so the seal is true to life.
Made even better by the inclusion of the second image which offers perspective, Larry.
Larry Bliss: Glad to oblige, Ray...

This is bizarre Larry. Maybe the fathers of the state thought wheat looked prettier than whatever it is you do grow in North Carolina?
Larry Bliss: I just found out that wheat is grown in our mountains. Our main agricultural product right now seems to be chickens, which would look pretty stupid on the seal.

There must be something symbolic about wheat.
Larry Bliss: Wheat = healthy grains = life = youth and vitality = everything good. smile
Perhaps you are good at making bread Larry?
Larry Bliss: I've never tried. Hmmm...
Very pleasing design and the wet accentuates the gold tones.
Larry Bliss: The entire building is beautifully appointed. Beautiful surroundings for political BS.
i quite like the golden brown tones of wheat stalks, Larry. i love the close crop of the first one.
Larry Bliss: It turned out nicely...
