FIELDS OF BRONZE
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.
