Flippant Friday….. Piglet in the Window

Pigglet-in-Window

Spotted this rotund Piglet in the farmhouse window…..   Gazing out on the wide world beyond the glass,  Piglet had a smile on his face, but I interpreted that as a plea for escape. 

One day we will all be free to escape. .till then…

Summer must be on the way !

Two days of warm sunshine….  summer must be on the way.

If you wanted proof, then our Calla Lily is now in flower… and just to make its seasonal point, our Pine Tree has now started to add its Christmas decorations 🙂

But the real proof is a late evening walk across the meadows.  A sinking sun, no breeze and a thermometer still reading 20c…. just a perfect end to rather fine day.

Flippant Friday……. Being Stalked

The Eyes Have it!

Those sharp, bright, staring eyes remined me of the the famous Poem by William Blake – “Tyger, Tyger Burning Bright“.

His description still seems as valid to day as when it was written back in 1794.  Now that alone is worth thinking about.  Not that many people would have even seen an image of a Tiger when his Poem was published. 

This little fellow, those eyes, his pose reminded me of his much bigger cousin….  he didn’t move as we passed, no hair on his lush thick coat twitched, not sure he breathed……  but those eye’s followed our every step.

No Tiger, but there is still danger out there so….

There is Nothing New…..

Now that is what I call a Security Window!

Security has always mattered…….  and maybe we did learn some lessons from our ancestors.

Maybe another lesson to be learned is to…..
