Sheep may safely graze

sheep grazing

A beautiful sunny day to end November. I enjoyed a lovely walk with the dogs and took a moment to capture this quiet scene as sheep grazed peacefully in the sun at the end of a lane that leads absolutely nowhere (we have a few of those).

      P.S. Now I have the tune, “Sheep May Safely Graze” running through my head. LOL!

        Well, that’s not a bad tune to have in your head. Great for keeping the blood pressure down.

        LOL! Yes, you’re absolutely right! 🙂

      Thanks. It’s even better in real life as there is nothing but more of the same as far as the eye can see. One of my favourite places to go and stand and stare whenever I need a quiet moment.

    I wonder if it has always led to nowhere. We have a few pathways like that but sometimes the path has been blocked because of recent land sales or developments.

      It did lead somewhere once. It is a very old path and the landscape has changed around it. It now ends at a thick wood but once it would take the walker to Stratford.

        Ah! Hopefully the wood compensates for the lack of a path ie provides a home for wildlife.

        Well it is a haven for wildlife. It’s also a pheasant shoot but the smart birds spread out into the surrounding countryside. So, we have quite a few pheasants pop up unexpectedly, even in the garden.

    Your photos make me feel the same way as really well written British Country House Mysteries. As if the UK is a better place than anywhere else and time runs more slowly, the animals are more intelligent, and the people are more interesting. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise!

      Thank you. I love the UK but I know the world is full of lovely places. It’s just England is home to me and there’s no place like home.

    Bach! I love that music, and your photo is a peaceful complement to the tune now going through my head.
