In Bali life revolves around the planting and harvesting of rice. While eels slip through the mud and dragonflies flutter overhead farmers plant seedlings in the wet rice field or 'saweh.' Soon each plant is crowned with flowers and tiny green kernels appear. Rain nourishes the kernels which grow plump and sweet. The green plants turn golden and ripe and everyone helps harvest the grain. When the harvest is finished the farmers give thanks to the goddess of rice for a successful crop.
