For a while I thought I was going to miss out on today’s sunshine and it was two in the afternoon before I had everything sorted – grabbed my stick and headed up the brae past the graveyard.
Not my usual route but I’ve got to keep pushing myself. It would be too easy to lie back and wait till my butt is sorted before taking on any exercise. With inclement weather forecast for the rest of the week I was raring to get out there before all the leaves fall.
and the sheep eat all the grass —
That photo with the sheep contrasts with the woollie backs I would see in the south Wales valleys in the late sixties when I was down that way building concrete plant in their not-so-green valleys. Our local sheep look so clean whereas the Welsh woollies were virtually black with coal dust from the pit bings around that time.
Even a colour blind ejit like me can appreciate these colours —
An arch with a gate to keep the sheep and cows from straying upriver —
It was only when I got this next pic on my ‘puter that I noticed the cow has an extra leg —
This next tree grew out across the river before it reached for the sky —
and there’s always something about a river that catches the eye —
There are still a few leaves in the hollows and valleys but it’s rather different up top —
A lovely way to spend an afternoon —
and catch a shot —
or two —
of the setting sun —
before it sinks behind the chimney pots —
