Saturday Photo: Summer Field at Giverny

One last photo from Giverny. This one is not of the garden itself, but the hillside behind it. The field--or one very similar--shows up in several of Monet's paintings, notably one of his wife and son with the poppies being just dabs of colour in the green field.

It's an appropriate photo for the first Saturday of summer too. Already the sun rose a minute later this morning than yesterday, the day of the solstice. No wonder this season was a time of celebration in pagan--and more recent--times.
