In late May the fields of barley were still green and unripe. The seed heads remained almost vertical, and the whisker-like seed spikes or awns were just starting to turn yellow. The wind moved through the field making the barley stalks move and sway with an exaggerated sighing and rustling; the whiskers blurred into an indistinct haze on the surface of the crop; and birds sang overhead.
