Fleeced, with apologies to RLS




Fleeced in every sense of the word. This is horticultural fleece on a tatty field to prevent frost and blight from affecting the crop. Click on the photo to get a bigger view.

Of course my first thought is how much more fun it would be to jump around in such a cozy field than it would be to jump into a pile of dry autumn leaves.

I love that. It reminds me a little of the cheery trees we have over here, covered in plastic to keep the birds away.

I've never seen such an acreage under cover as this.

In strong light it creates mirages.
I think it's funny to swaddle land that is being " husbanded"

We have them here too, aren't they mad-looking?

They are mad looking, somehow they suck the life out of a scene -like a massive shroud!

They band the fields here with strips of stretchy polythene before sowing the maize sometimes. It breaks up, biodegrades eventually, but leaves nasty shreds around for ages.

If you put this on Flickr and tag it RLS, Lesley from Peregrinations will pick it up and put it in her RLS pool...
