Although I have accentuated the colors of this painting a bit, the view is from one of the farmlands near my home. We're in our second season of hay harvest, and already I am watching the hay cut, rolled and moved under barn eaves. The feel of this hay season is different than the spring cutting - fall hay fields are more muted in color - the yellows more golden than lemon, the shadows more brown, and the surrounding trees of the farms - less green and more orange and brown ... LOVE each of these seasons!
Our trip today was canceled due to rain and tour guide illness -- so we'll reschedule when the weather and our guide are both better.
The trip yesterday was incredible! Lots of history, wonderful plants, awesome stories - and our lunch, catered by a winery, was followed by a taste tasting and mini-tour of the winery -- not on the schedule -- but a delicious surprise!
Hope your day is filled with color!
