For all you animal lovers and yes, sheep lovers too, may I introduce Henry to you.
Henry is from Devon and is a rather bedraggled and forlorn looking creature. I suspect by his name it is male…(wow) and it is on the look out for its young ones as we stumbled upon Henry and his lambs in February last year. Henry is one of 60 different breeds of sheep in the UK, more than any other country actually. Do you know that you can go to SHEEP conferences all over the world and talk sheep talk forever? There are many unflattering characteristics of sheep which the bible akins humans to. Oh dear… like they get lost a lot, a bit dense, panic stricken in times of trouble etc. Oh, sheep love X Factor and Big Brother because everyone else is doing it too… huh? I don’t want to be a sheep unless there is a Good Shepherd. How about you?
This is called Hibiscus Rosa- Sinensis, or the Bunga Raya in Malaysian language, the national flower of Malaysia and also of Hawaii. A great looking flower which sprouts from a bush bursting in many colours, usually found in warm countries. If in dire straits you can use the crushed petals to condition your hair. I very much doubt that this will happen, as Tesco’s own shampoo costs as little as 50p.LOL. Also sold as an indoor plant in the UK, but unless you are greatly skilled and green fingered, you might not want to bother – mine was attacked by aphids. All the best!
There is a cat on my belly! At first glance, I thought …aww this is cute. Then I took a closer look and realised there was a string attached. Then a third look revealed an owner sitting in the shade of a tree near the foot of Paris greatest landmark – the Eiffel Tower. It was when he tapped me on the shoulder for an euro for taking the photo that I realised, these two pets were money making machines. I guess they did not suffer… much.
I love this image. I caught this on the Greek Island of Crete. His sandals cast aside, worries far away, snoozing by the sea, just chilling. What might have completed this picture for me would possibly be a cool long drink, you know the ones with an umbrella in a tall glass…mmm…bliss. Is it possible for our lives be like that daily? I don’t mean literally snoozing in a delicious hammock or a craggy old boat all the time but in composure? What does it take to have peace like that? That is the thought and photo for today – have a wonderful day.
The reason for the name of the word press blog – pearls and swines is obvious – some photos are going to be wowzer and some just plain and others…well just naff. The main thing is HAVE A GO! Enjoy this photo – it is a photo taken way up there in the sky of the emerging sun. When you are so high up there – our problems on earth seem so small… best way of looking at things perhaps.
