The former-green, almost-brown season

.

The wild places around the periphery of Meitar are going into their in-between period, no longer green but not yet brown.

 
We had a few minutes of rain today, but that might be the last until next fall.


Just a month ago it looked like this, all green and flowery.
I hiked for a whole hour out there today without seeing even one person.

There's a lot of motion in the top shot. Lovely!

Dina said...

Jose, yes, the motion was almost like the sea.
Also a hawk was circling in the air and since I was totally alone I started singing

"Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.
Oklahoma, Ev'ry night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
Makin' lazy circles in the sky.
We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!"
:)

So beautiful Dina. I love that song and entire musical also. Midwesterners at heart.

This place looks so quiet. I'd love to lie down on those grass and just nap.
