Well turned out

The days are lengthening and the grass is romping away, in the wind the fields quiver and team with life. All creatures great and small. May saw "The Turn Out", young lambs and calves put out to graze for the first time. It is a joyful, bucolic scene, one I have come to know and love these last few years here on our hill. There is something timeless about the land being grazed. The verges are frothing with cow parsley and studded with clover and vetch. Walking takes me to forgotten fields and corners less trodden as I try to check fences and gate posts are fit for purpose! Some are, and some are not, so the cycle of repairing and renewal begins. Boodle accompanies me and keeps watch over the flock, come with us if you have a minute...
 
 I have taken to going the long way round...both literally and metaphorically. 
Taking longer, saying less, noticing more...

  1. What a lovely post - such tranquil looking rural photographs. I'm lucky enough to live close enough to the countryside to be able to see cattle, sheep and horses grazing whenever I want and it's a sight I never tire of seeing.
