In the fields there was a rich profusion of plants, like Arac nut plantations, next to Banana and ginger. The paddy had mostly been harvested but there were a few plots in which the golden ears of the rice were bent down with the weight of plenty. I was reminded of the images of Samuel Palmer, celebrating the fruitfulness of the earth.  A lone scare crow waved its ragged sleaves at the many paddy birds (egrets) that dotted the fields with white specks, clustered around buffaloes wallowing in the pools.
