Sunday in pictures

Fairly serious author’s warning: if you have no interest in watching horses graze, I would look away now.

The really tragic thing is that I could watch them eat grass for hours. The riveting minuet of herd behaviour is endlessly interesting to me. But at the moment, there is just the sheer joy of seeing them with their heads down to the new growth, after months and months of snow and ice. It is beyond anything.

Hill, from a different angle than usual, over the dry stone wall and through the trees:

  1. Stanley seems to think spring is blissful! And lovely hellebores (I think?). I've planted hundreds of bulbs in the Army garden while we've been here, most of which I think must have either been eaten by squirrels or have rotted, because there is no sign of most of my hyacinths or tulips this year. So I'm going to branch out, and I think hellebores are going to be my next big thing. And lovely herd - M the P looks so pretty in the first picture yesterday!
