MY WORLD ~ 38 A Country Idyll

Although it is still winter and not spring, flowers
bloom and lambs are arriving



sheep gaze out from behind the boles of the trees



and gracefully graze on the grass that is green



deigning to glance at me as I pass.



Across the road a change of scene, what goes up



soon comes down as well



the race for the meals on wheels gathers pace



a perfect time to check on the herd and newborn calf



while the dogs are marching homeward bound after
checking the boundaries all around.


All pictures like being enlarged, so do the animals!

  3. Such a beautiful day! I'd love to be out walking amongst those sheep in the early spring sun!

    Here, we are incredibly hot. Edward is lying on his bed here in my office. Face down, spirits down!

  5. "Meals on wheels" - I like it! btw what makes Spring? A date on the calendar or what is happening outside? My jasmine is flowering right now - is that spring here?

  6. Hi Arija. Good to see the country so green for you now!
    Loved the flowers...interested to hear that yours are similarly flowering out of order...I think some of ours are too!
    And absolutely delighted to hear that you got to hear David Helfgott play...good on you!
    Could I possibly be first on your comments today..surely not.

    You are coming into spring, here is harvest time, and just a tinge of autumny feeling in the air.

  23. Lovely early spring photos for you. Very pastoral. Thanks for coming by---and yes, you remember more when you bounce memories off of one another. Thanks for stopping by. I now have some Japanese music to listen to on my blog.

  26. What beautiful countryside you have. Lovely photos of the animals and especially the one looking down the road. Great depth of field. How green everything looks now. I wonder why the animals are getting Meals on Wheels when there is so much green grass around. Maybe it is a suppliment?
