When Mike and I left the old homestead last Wednesday (May 31), I felt I was seeing the vivid yellowness of the rapeseed fields for the last time. The yellow blossoms were falling and the fields were already taking on a greenish hue, making the yellow more dull. And – as we drove in yesterday, my suspicions were confirmed. Some blossoms still cling to the vines, but they will all be gone soon. The overall effect is a dull green.

The fields were just turning to yellow on Friday, May 12, when Clint and I drove in to pick up the 4-wheeler.
We didn’t come in again until May 24, when we stayed for a week over Memorial Day weekend. I was glad that Hallie and Nick -- and Clint, too -- got to see the yellow fields, even though they were probably beyond their peak at that time.
