It’s nearly harvest – in fact some of the farmers to the north of us, have already started.
Harvest indicates, to me, that summer is here. Long hot days, snakes, flies, strong seas breezes (if we’re lucky!) in the afternoons, the rumbling of trucks and headers at any time of the day or night… and being itchy! Especially if you’re like my sister and I and allergic to grain dust!
It also means the beautiful green that we’ve had has faded to a golden yellow and as we get further into January/February the lovely golden glow fades to a washed out brown.
It’s hard to imagine the coolness of winter and the green paddocks – when you look back at this photo…
…and realize it’s only three months ago it was taken, then look at the one I took last night, you can’t help but marvel at nature!
What are your thoughts on summer?
