I walked up to the barley field this morning and noticed how golden it is turning, and some of the upper leaves are bending over – a sign that it is nearing readiness for harvest. I should have taken some photographs of it whilst up there, but didn’t. I’m not sure why.
Here is a shot from a week ago of an ear of barley. I don’t know the particular variety but it seems to have a lot of red colouring.
I’ll have to get up there again soon to take some photos of it in its golden glory; time seems to be going so fast, it won’t be that long before the sound of the combine harvesters will be heard……..
