Sunday Pictures

Posted by Tania Kindersley.

Gentle day. Ate eggs, drank strong coffee, did work, contemplated the cows. In the early evening, there was a walk with both nieces, my sister, the Man in the Hat, and three dogs.

‘Look at the sheep, look at the sheep,’ I shouted. They kindly looked, although I do not think they are quite as riveted as I.

‘Just like Far From the Madding Crowd,’ I said.

‘You,’ I said to the Man in the Hat, ‘can be Gabriel Oak.’

The dogs chased sticks and ran around in circles. The birds were singing their heads off. The air was still as still.

The swallows have gone. I thought I might feel melancholy about that, but I do not. I think of them, on their mighty journey to Africa, and, as always, it seems to me a perfect miracle.

Today’s pictures are of trees and sky and sheep and cows.

  1. LOVE the demure Pigeon!

  2. Sorry - day late really - but I heard the Spiegel in spiegel as well and was totally captivated. Didn't see your original reference to it but as soon as you mentioned music in yesterday's blog entry I just knew it would be the same piece! Must go look at the photos now.


Your comments give me great delight, so please do leave one.
