harvest time

These were taken about a month ago while I was traveling.  It is the time for the harvest, and the farmers have received good rain here.  And now, when I go to market, there are large bags everywhere displaying their fruits. There is teff, oilseeds, sorghum, wheat, barley, corn and coffee.

After the Rains

The countryside is beginning to change.  The rainy season is officially over and we must prepare to say goodbye to the lushness around us.  Our part of the country has been very blessed this year to receive more than enough rain to water the crops and the many rivers and streams.  In the next few weeks, the landscape will morph from green to brown.  And right when I am finally getting used to my surroundings – I am going to have to adjust all over again.
