I wish you could all see the beauty of our meadows today. The sky is deep blue and the fields are all buttercup-rich. I tried laying down in the grass (laying down was easy - but oh the getting up again!) and taking photographs, as it struck me that all the small creatures who live in the fields would find them like an impenetrable jungle now. The result is on my header - but it will only be on for a short while until I can take a better one - there is a very strong South west wind blowing across the buttercups at present. I make no excuses for adding another photograph of the two brood mares and their foals - that was also taken a few minutes ago on my afternoon walk with Tess. The little foals are already wearing halters - they start 'em young in the racing world.
Juliet of Crafty Green Poet has kindly named me for an award. I am proud to say that after much trial and error I have even got it onto my blog without my son's help - so thank you Juliet, it is much appreciated.
I have to name fifteen people I would like to pass it on to. I can't possibly do that. All the people on my blog list give me hours of pleasant reading and lots of food for thought - not to say laughs, ideas, and all manner of pleasantries. So if you are on my blog list and have put something on your blog within the last fortnight - then I hereby suggest that - if you like - you help yourself to the award as a thankyou from me.
In the meantime here are a few more mouse's eye views to enjoy.
