At last! Spring has arrived. Or perhaps I shouldn’t tempt fate by proclaiming it. Anyway, after freezing wind and deluges, here’s the proof of brightness, photo taken two evenings ago. You can see Windmill Hill in the distance. And as for Townsend Meadow and this fluffy looking crop – this year the over-wintered plants that I took for wheat, have recently transformed into barley, their feathery top-knots tall and shimmering in the sunshine. I am in love with the field – the way the light dances over it.
This week Tina asks us to find inspiration in blue and green. Please go and view her (as ever) stunning work.

Blue .and green it is and aren’t we all thankful for Spring turning into summer
We certainly are, Beverly. It’s actually been warm here for 2 days now.
Dancing light is irresistible, Tish! Allotment for you this weekend? Have a good one! 🙂 🙂
Yep. You’ve got it, Jo. Lots to catch up with on the plot, though runner bean stix in this evening.
Spring at last! And now almost summer. I do hope we have a spell of decent warm weather, I think we need some. It can rain during the night so the plants are happy too.
I know exactly what you mean by the light “dancing over” the field. I’ve noticed that myself although I wouldn’t have described it as poetically! Wonderful blues and greens – welcome spring indeed!
Thank you, Tina, for this very timely challenge.
Ahh the wind that shakes the barley – love your description of the wheat to barley transposing!
Magic moment, Laura 🙂
That is a beautiful field, Tish, and hurrah for spring.
We’ve not had barley in the field before, so it’s a whole new vista. And indeed – hurrah for spring.
Beautiful. “Once there were green fields, kissed by the sun.”–song, the Brothers Four
Thanks for that sunny song, John 🙂
I love a barley field, with every little touch of breeze making the fronds dance! And yes, it does feel as if spring has finally arrived 🙂
Almost hot today in fact. Keeping fingers crossed.

I am very lucky. I do try to remember to keep appreciating it 🙂
