Watereth the Hills

He watereth the hills from his chambers:
the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

Psalms 104:13

Blue skies and rolling hills, a beautiful combination for a perfect day. Notice how the dry land winter wheat is growing in fields planted in horizontal stripes on the hills. New growth, last year's harvest, new growth, and last year's harvest are all layered to create an interesting effect. The winter wheat is planted in the autumn and several inches grow right after planting. Winter snow and cold weather slow this growth considerably, but with the sun of early spring and it's warmth, the wheat takes off quickly and the fields are covered with lush green by early March.
