In a Fen field.

By Paree
I was down in the Fens the other night
moonlight walking.
as you do.

and you do see the queerest sights,
scarecrows are not what hey used to be.

been so busy lately but found time today
to make a picture
I love doing them , and hope you enjoy this one

thanks every one,

I live on the edge of the Fens,

the fields are drained 24....7 if they stopped the draining, the ground would become
waterlogged, and marshy,
that's why we never get any floods here, they are pumped away.

the Dutch came and helped us with the draining, bringing tulips with them,
each tulip bulb was sold for many pounds and kept in pots they were so precious,
now of cause the fields are full of them and are picked for sale as the tulip heads must be taken off quickly to grow the bulb into a bigger bulb.
many of the heads are used to make the flower floats that parade in Spalding town.


and the big sky is amazing.
like a big dome , covering the fields of golden corn and green sugar beet,
so at the moment with blue skies and fluffy white clouds its amazing....

but...
at night
well as you can see..lol

and recently many scarecrows have appeared in florescent jackets and track suits because the farmers are not allowed to use the bangs that they used to set off,
also giant kites of big black birds are flown high in the sky
to frighten the other birds.
