We all went for a lovely ride and afterwards, as it was such a gorgeous afternoon, we sat on a hill in one of my fields and thought what a wonderful place Shetland is.
As always, the dogs and Lambie and Lambert came too.
We found a nice spot (not difficult) and sat down to admire the scenery, let the dogs/sheep potter while I took close-up photos of Devil’s-bit Scabious (Succisa pratensis), one of my favourite Shetland wild flowers.
This was our view. How we suffered.
Fairly soon, Lambie decided he wanted to talk to us.
As did Lambert, who sat down behind Flossie – she said he was surprisingly comfortable.
Lambert has been quite aloof since his operation so it was lovely that he wanted to spend time with us.
When you think about it, however, who sits on a picnic rug with two sheep?
Do you think Lambie was perhaps jealous of Lambert moving in on the pet-sheep relationship?
So while Loki had fun investigating the five acre field…..
And Her Maj kept an eye on everything, in case it needed to die ….
…… Lambie and Lambert nodded off on the picnic blanket.
Lambert slept in very funny (funny peculiar, not funny ha-ha) positions.
I think you know you are loved when two sheep nod off beside you. And you know you are an idiot when you shove up on your coat/blanket so that Lambie can have a dry place to rest as he doesn’t like wet grass very much!
And then the midges got us just that bit too much and we went home quickly. I HATE MIDGES!
