The ever-changing cycle of nature has kicked out a time of year we should celebrate. After a long, cold, white winter and a late spring, the countryside in our part of Minnesota has taken on a welcome touch of green.

Fields of green grain and alfalfa, fields of green soybeans and corn, green hills, green woodlots, green pastures. It all speaks of a nature that is alive and growing.

Enjoy what you can for it is all too brief a time in our state. In another month, the fields of small grain will be golden brown and the farmers will turn those fields black. As the days grow shorter and shorter the leaves of green will become leaves of yellow and red. They will begin to fall with the first frost and before we know it, Old Man Winter will be back.
