Trees and Rocks

The area around the village has lots of rock outcrops, in fact parts of the village are built on them also and there are also trees of weird shapes due to pruning over the years.

i will learn how to do this

Walks with The Brute

Today went above the village to the south. It is another warmish sunny day, warmer climbing than coming down, when the breeze felt cold.

Nico enjoyed himself, as usual, no more obedient than normal though.

You never know that might happen as he gets older.

I saw my first wild orchids of the year today and a few more wild flowers starting to open also.

The last picture is the village i live in.

R.I.P. Bessie

My beloved Dog Bessie died today almost 15 years old. She was in no pain just had a heart attack and was dead 3 hours later.

Life will seem empty for me Sas, our other dog and Karen my wife.
