Baling by moonlight

We were woken up in the early hours by weird sounds and strange lights illuminating the fields...


Aliens?? No!! .........well, not unless you count the farmers baling at one o'clock in the morning.. I suppose that is somewhat alien to us!


We assumed the intense heat of the last couple of days, with temperatures set to rise to the high 30s today, will mean it is safer to work outdoors during the night than risk the effects of the heat during the farmers 'normal' working hours.

(Only Elizabeth would get up to photograph them!!!)*

However, despite today's soaring temperatures....

work continued .....

*Mad dogs and Englishmen, eh??

I don't envy you those high 30's! Stay cool if you can. Drink lots of chilled rosé!

Have rain or storms been forecast? Farmers often work late in these circumstances too.
