Lawn Mower Graveyard

In search of unique and different areas to photograph, I stumbled upon a lawn mower graveyard.    John Deere, Toro, Cub Cadet, Snapper; the names, makes and models were abundant and all set aside for what?

I had no idea that there were that many brands of push, riding and industrial mowers.    Set out in the field covered with vines and thistle.

These machines captured top dollar when they were in their prime.    Is this what will happen to us when our parts are broken, put out to pasture and let the vines and life take over.    Many of these were scrapped for parts, but look untouched.   Row after row, hundreds of these in the field.   Swallowed up by the overgrowth.

It was sad to see these once prized possessions sit abandoned in this field.   Such a unique place for me on this sunny afternoon.
