Drying out

Summer's here, and the grass is drying out. The shoulder-high grass would be fine tinder for a fire so must be cut before it gets any drier. The Municipal lawnmower consists of a tractor pulling an oversized mower, and several men with "weed-eaters" finishing off the tricky bits.

In the far background, a couple of km away, (halfway to the horizon) there are still two shallow pans with waterfowl enjoying the mini-lakes before they finally evaporate. (I'll post photos tomorrow.)
