The winter sun was low in the Shetland sky with an ominous large dark cloud threatening, so I decided to go for a little walk with BeAnne and Flossie, who both needed some fresh air.
So off we marched into the hill.
It duly started to spit a bit while the sun made a valiant effort to keep going. There was even a faint little rainbow.
These drystone structures are traditional Shetland planticrubs and were built for sheltering young kale plants.
I find them fascinating. They were obviously built by someone very skilled.
BeAnne melted into the hill, like she always does.
The only way to find her is to watch carefully for something to move and that’s probably her. As she is a Patterdale terrier, she is absolutely silent about everything (except the postman)!
As, ever Her Maj was an intrepid, if slightly damp, wee dog and, although it wasn’t a very long walk, I think she enjoyed it.
Feeling very virtuous, I went into my little shed to make a sheeple.
I am quite pleased with these two.
They are for sale…… just saying! SOLD
