By the looks of the fields around these parts, the Summer season seems to have begun (despite being quite a few degrees cooler than that today!) Roadside fields have either already had their first cuttings, or are burdened with a Serengeti of tall grasses laced with the colors of the season, brilliant yellows and purples, as in these Buttercups and Cow vetch blossoms:

It seems like an unusually colorful season, but then, I might just be noticing it more these days. How about you? Does it seem particularly vibrant where you are?
