Ewe down there…..

Herdwick-Ewe

Lambing time is now well underway for another farming season.  I recall walking through a rather damp marshy field in the Lake District.  As it was a busy Lambing season,  we did our best to avoid walking through fields or creating any anxiety for the Ewes and their new borne lambs.  Hence we found ourselves walking through a rather damp and undesirable field…a field that looked free from Sheep.

Not the case.  The above Herdwick Mum was well camouflaged in the marshy reeds, not moving, pretending that we couldn’t see her and more particularly her tiny Lamb.   We passed her and also pretended she wasn’t there.

Reminded me of that saying…….  “All Sheep are Safely Gathered in”

Just like the Herdwick Mother….

The Miners Track…..

Miners-Track-Borrowdale

Borrowdale Valley at Grange, Cumbria

The tranquil Borrowdale Valley…. or at least it is tranquil now.  But many a miner has trudged this track.  His daily journey to and from the Graphite and Slate Mines at the head of the valley.  No doubt many a fully laden wagon, pulled by a weary horse, will also have plodded the trail.  Today it is the province of hikers and tourists…. they at least can pause to gaze and enjoy the surroundings

I imagine many of us have paused and pondered on our own surrounds in these strange times.

As you ponder……

Please Remember ….
