Miscellaneous Spring Pix

This is not quite the Michelin man....but it is a HUGE tire man made from tractor tires and car tires.

This was just a farm we happened to pass that I really liked. Their Norwegian flag is flying and there are what we call "burnt marshmallows" (round hay bales covered in black plastic wrap) waiting for their animals to eat.
Here is the first true sign of spring in our little part of Norway....the poop sprayers come out. Yep, it is exactly what you think it is. The farmers keep their cows in the barns all winter long (they won't be out until May 10th). Where does all that poop go? In tanks...and then it gets mixed with water until it is liquified for the most part...then it is put in these spray tanks and sprayed on the fields. The is quite pungent, to say the least.
