Guarding till evening

Phex is a Belgian sheepdog, at least most of him. He likes to guard the sheep, because he likes to be outside. It’s boring for him to be inside the house. He’s a bit scared of Brad though. Not as scared as Bach, but still.

We often meet our neighbour. In the meantime I’ve cut a lot of the thistles near her house and the pasturage looks much better.

Then the sun goes down behind the fields and paints trees and buildings in red. I see a green tree and I want it painted rehed. dumdidum I guess the sun likes the Rolling Stones.

There she goes again and visits other people, spectacular exit, palatable and silky finish. Own photo, licence: CC by-SA/ Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported

  1. I just love all your furry friends. Peaceful country life…want to swap lives for a little while?
    I have to send you pictures of the 18th century looking chairs I purchased. I dont know their age but they look really old. You know– they’ll be for that chateau I will one day own. ;)
    Hope all is well at the castle.

    • The chairs in your sleeping rooms? They look great. I hope they’ll be standing in your castle fast. ;)

      The castle here is alright, lots of work outside in summer. Blackberries and hawthorns use me as a pin cushion while I’m cutting the “hedge” around the property. And half the pasturage still needs a weeadeater-treatment. It’s so big. I’m not moving much, but kind of busy though.

      • Yes, those are them! Do you now have cattle in with the sheep or are they on a different property? They are pretty cows!

      • The cows of the neighbours. They sometimes lay on the fence and come over to visit us, but usually they stay on their side.
