Spring Like Day's
It's always good to see a bit of colour in the garden even if it is White. These little Hellebores have come up leaps and bounds since all the dead stuff has been cut down. Only a few daffodils have appeared as yet but lots to come I hope , around the perimeter. This last week has been very fine sunny weather, so feel much better. Wile-e has picked up as he to hates rain and windy days, so he's been back on form looking forward to his walk. To give him and myself a break from the garden we walk up to the local farm , and some times pass other little dogs the white Highland Terrier being his FAVOURITE FOR SOME REASON. It also helps to trim his nails on hard ground.
Going back a few years ago one particular morning stays in my mind. My sister had popped across for a little holiday for a few day's. We were making our way up to the farm with Lady , my Greyhound before Wile-e. Stopped at the farm gate peered over to come across a very strange sight. The sheep were grazing away but one in particular looked in distress. The poor creature was on her back, legs sticking up in the air. Firmly stuck she couldn't move , for how long I don't know. The Farm being two or three miles up the road we both decided to go to her rescue. Not an easy task I remember, so we said no we can't budge her . We tried again and together we gave one almighty push, finally getting her on her feet. PHEW!! I tell you her poor back was completely flat just like a coffee table. Have never, thank goodness seen this ever since. The farmer said a few days later it was good you got her to her feet quickly as they become very disorientated , and after a while the Crows come down and have a peck.!! Oh Yack!!
It's another fine day here a little cooler , but very refreshing :)
Hope you enjoyed my story, it's funny how it just came to mind today. My sister is paying me a visit next Sunday , so I am really looking forward to that.
Have a great relaxing Sunday :)
