The Farmer as Artist

Regardless of the time of year, a drive through the Austrian countryside is always a delight.  I have never seen a place so perfectly groomed.  It's very rare to find a piece of litter along the highways or a billboard or a broken-down vehicle in a field or a trash pile.  Most of the fields seem to have not a weed nor a blade of grass out of place.  Throughout the country, dense forests encircle rich green fields resulting in nothing less than a sense of joy to these travelers.  I like the artistic patterns on this chartreuse field south of Vienna, between the villages of Olbersdorf and Bauvorhaben Grottendorf.
