The field behind us used to have sheep grazing but they haven’t been there for sometime and the grass has grown and grown. The sheep returned this morning and could hardly be seen in the long grass. I love that, just as I took the photo, one of next door’s cats walked along the fence.
Later the farmer turned up and started mowing.
Still later, the sheep returned and headed straight down the field towards our hedge.
Our walk today took us round the back, along a short section of The Great Flat Lode where we saw a young Blue Jay.
The Thistle tops were properly purple and gorgeous.
