Sheep and their brilliance

On the walk over the heather covered hills and into the beech woods many sheep were resting peacefully.

The fall was beginning to show its colours - in places the ferns had turned colours, there hadn't really been a proper frost yet but I suppose a very cool night is enough to remove all green from these delicate plants' 'cheeks'.

The sheep went on rounds, knowing exactly where the apple trees were. As a matter of fact we went over to pick an apple from a wild apple tree and when we turned away from the tree two ewes came up to us to see if we would care to share. I had not noticed the ewes anywhere near the tree when we walked over to it, but I imagine they had been hiding with spy-glasses in front of their eyes, making sure they wouldn't miss out on an applelicious opportunity.

Resting with pals in the shade.

All by her lonesome but perfectly happy!
