FIELDS OF BRONZE

Landscape (UK) - - Our Landscape -

In Au­gust, fields that were pre­vi­ously bright yel­low with oil seed rape, gold with corn and wheat, or green with peas, be­gin to change as the crops are speed­ily brought in. Hay fields are dot­ted all over with com­pact, rounded hay bales. Stored in this way, the hay is more re­sis­tant to mois­ture and thus re­sists spoil­ing. Child­hood days spent play­ing on hay­bales are of­ten re­mem­bered with fond­ness as the light catches on their wo­ven gold strands and the rich heady scent of cut grasses fills the air.
