Ewa_K, thank you!

Mike, the wee birds and squirrels are left with the remnants of these grasses, they made baled rolls with it. Food for the cattle, I suppose. I have seen deer there too so they will be feeling robbed, I'd expect.

Herb, thank you. The sunlight was coming in quite strong and the grasses sparkled. I passed and then backed up so I could see it again. The next time I pass by there, it is all baled hay.

The mechanical action of baling releases a lot of seeds and the animals pick up the grains off the ground, everyone gets their share!

This has awakened some lovely childhood memories, Jean. I Loved when the grasses became tall and feathery some were like barley, others were soft and velvety. We would flatten out a circle (crop circles?) about four feet diameter, and have a little den surrounded by the grasses and trees. Great scene! Thanks for the memory! Theolfa

Liam, thank you!

Mike, That is some good information! That is good news then!

Theolfa, Me too! Me too! The tall grasses for me were rye, a crop of rye. It was like magic, wasn't it? Thanks for sharing the memory!
