What a sharpness! That's really a stunning shot. The cropped agricultural machine in the foreground makes me feel like being right in the middle of the field work. (What is it? A hay turning machine? Sorry...I'm a poor city child) L/YS

so am I Wolf, even if I go in the countryside every now and then ;) but yes, I guess it's a hay turning machine. many thanks for visiting and YSing :))
It's always a pleasure to have a look at your pictures. Thanks for your feedback. Probably I'll need one some day, because cutting the lawn isn't my favourite hobby :)
haha :) my solution : no lawn at all ;)
:) I'll try to make this solution palatable to my landlord. What about some green colored cement instead of all the grass? I could paint some flowers on it.
In New Zealand the device in the foreground is called a tedder. A farmer uses it to ted the hay. In other words, turn the cut grass over so it dries evenly on both sides. It also puts the grass into rows that are easier for the hay baler to collect.
If you use a petrol mower to mow your grass, covering the ground with concrete can be a long-term green solution as mowing makes more carbon dioxide than making cement, ...but new mown grass smells wonderful.... mooo.
ok Wolf, but then please use biodegradable painting, we must be respectful of mother nature ;)
dear Lloyd many thanks for your comment. I'd so like to go and watch tedders in NZ.... this country is on top of my dream list. amitiés de France, pom'
I don't think this is a tedder! It's an "acrobat" and can turn and row up hay - it doesn't "ted". A tedder doesn't just turn hay over, it picks it up and shakes it about. At least that's my memory from a childhood of hay-timing in the north of England.

hello Roger ! thank you for visiting this acrobat then :) amitiés de France, pom'
