WOW… Three near perfect days


Another bright start to the day…. Autumn is fading fast, but with winter mornings like this we will not be complaining.  After several weeks of dark damp days it has been a real bonus to enjoy these rather chilly sunny days and witness the autumnal decline.

The leaves are nearly all down but what a colourful carpet they make….

This Long Horn is warming her back whilst catching the last of the years sun ….whilst foraging for lush herbage amongst the bracken.

A Peaceful day for a quiet walk to end the Year….soon be time to say goodbye 2017 and time to make those plans for the New Year ( I prefer to call them plans rather than resolutions ).

A Christmas Wish……

Robin Let there be Peace - Copy

Seasons Greetings to Everyone

And is it too much to hope that Peace throughout the World could be created by our political leaders. Nor is it a new plea as this Victorian Christmas Card graphically illustrates
