Monet was right

I adore hay fields -- expect to see more of them in this blog. When I said this, my husband quickly quipped that it had already been done.

Monet started his haystacks series of paintings in 1890. For the next thirty years he concentrated almost exclusively on haystacks, poplars, waterlilies, Rouen Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament.
