Field burning

Yesterday morning the local farmers were burning their fields, ridding them of undergrowth and insects and getting ready for spring planting.

There was a haze over all the countryside and the stringent smell of smoke.  I took these pictures from the church's front steps.

Oh look.  I'm glad to see there are fire engines attending the field burning.  The volunteer firemen were out patrolling the fields.

Traditional red fire trucks.  No sirens today.
