The curious lamb

This baby lamb was intrigued as we walked past their field about half a mile from our house (humans are vastly outnumbered by sheep in these parts).

The tangled undergrowth and monochrome treatment gives an almost abstract feel to the overall image.

Lambing Time

Out here in rural France, we’re surrounded by nature of course. That doesn’t mean it’s all idyllic, but it’s hard to take a walk during lambing time in spring and not feel, at least for a minute or two, that all’s well with the world.

March’s Last Photo

Spring is upon us, and in a field next to our local d├ęchetterie (recycling point) here are the lambs to prove it.

It really can’t get much more local for me than this, because I took this photograph through my own front window.

That’s my neighbour Albert, keeping a watchful eye on one of his last few ewes as she takes her lamb from the barn over to the pasture, which is on the other side of the road that you can see at the top of the picture.

Sad to say, Albert died earlier this year. You can just see his faithful dog, Arielle, behind him. That’s about as far apart as they ever were: Arielle pined away and died about two weeks after Albert.
