Well, this heat we have been having recently has really started to dry things up. For example, my garden is no longer a lake, and my peony plants finally have a chance to live. The little ponds on the fields are slowly going away, which means the ducks are running out of places to swim. And we have started to make hay, which undoubtedly means it is going to rain soon.
The canola field has changed from being mostly green with a few yellow patches to being bright yellow. You can still see a little bit of green, but in general it is a sea of yellow against the sky. In fact, it is the nicest canola field we have ever had. In the past they have been kind of patchy and short, but not this time.
