June is a busy time in the wheat fields of
In the countryside where our daughter lives
are thousands of acres of wheat fields.
Each day we were out and about
when we visited last year
we saw farmers driving their huge machines
harvesting the wheat.
Van Gogh was fascinated by this seasonsal activity too
although things were done differently
back in his day.
I've always loved this painting called
Wheat Stacks in Provence
painted in 1888.
The colour and the light are quite magical.
This exquisite painting by Claude Monet
epitomises Summer in the countryside
of rural France in 1897.
An old country house in the wheat region of France.
Both Van Gogh and Monet may have stayed
in such a house as they toured the countryside
painting rural scenes.
