The heat is back…hot like the underside of burning logs
The day starts so brightly, if you shut your eyes the light stays under your eyelids for a long, long time
Sometimes the clouds build up around us..skimming flat over the plateau
and a wind bends the long grasses this way and that
Then the clouds move on being pushed somewhere else. (Which is a good thing with the alfalfa turning into hay)
The first field of alfalfa is now being baled and hauled.
The second field has been cut and is drying into hay—-
Our days busy, busy with the back and forth of this and that.
2nd cutting of hay: First field is done, the second field in the process, the third field still to go.
