The July Countryside In Sicily

Somewhere near Licodia Eubea, Sicily

July marks the end of the wheat season in Sicily, when the fields in the island’s center are harvested and the crop is rolled into bails of hay. The green pastures of the spring turned to gold at the end of May into early June, and during this period, the cutting, drying, and hauling takes place.

To some, this is the start of winter; the life cycle has ended and the earth sleeps.
