Changing Colours of the Countryside

Summer must be on it's way. The countryside is now taking on a golden hue. The wheat and canola crops are almost ready to start harvesting. Where green and yellow were the dominant colours a few short weeks ago, the crops have grown and turned to their golden brown colours. Very soon the hum of harvesters working day and night will be filling the air. What started out as being a poor year has now , due to good recent rains, being turned around to an above average year for the farmers.
