Harvest Sculpture

I can swear they are doing a third hay harvest this summer! Incredible.

Late summer gives rise to bale sculpture all over the region. Farmers put up elaborate compositions made of square and round bales. They first use them to promote local agricultural fetes, but then leave the sculptures by the road until it's time to use the hay for its direct purpose.

This one is near La Chapelle Urée in the Manche.
