Amber Waves

We are rounding the corner on summer here in Michigan's Thumb, and we are headed to the Amber Waves of Grain time of July. 

Tonight, returning from nine holes of Golf at Bird Creek in Port Austin, I stopped to view this scene. A field of wheat, gently tilting toward ripe, not yet amber, but yellowing more by the day. Towering clouds, the remnant of a day of rain and thunderstorms. 

I expect that harvest times will be a bit pushed back due to the very cold spring, but then, watching the grain ripening fast may make late harvest a guessing game.
