Very Close

It is the time that the water-lilies appear in some of the lochs around here..  They are one of my favourite flowers and I look forward to seeing them every year.


Today I have one helluva of a headache. I woke up with it and it won’t shift.  It is very close outside.  I would not be at all surprised if there was a thunderstorm.   It has been like this all day.  Gah!

To try and get rid of my pounding head, I took Haakon on my usual “physio” walk.

As no little dog and/or sheep wanted to come, I looked around and took my other best friend.  Haakon was happy and no trouble (unlike some who tend to play Grandmother’s footsteps – *** Lambie ***).

The other horses are all fine.

I can see the youngsters from the house.

They are always mooching around….

… looking gorgeous.

Sometimes they like to speak to their neighbours.

There is always much communication…..

…. with varying levels of annoyance!

Update:  Just now there was a smattering of rain and my headache has lifted a bit.  Early to bed, I think.  Sorry to be so dull.

    My sympathies on the wicked sinus headache. Been there, hated it. Do love your walking partner of the day.
    Rather a handsome dude. Would you ever take Albie or Newt on a walk?

      No, they are not nearby. They live 5 miles away. Albie would buck and Newt would be grudging! I would, however, take Storm, Waffle, Tiddles or Silver any time. They are all sweeties. x

    “Sorry to be so dull” ??? I don’t think you’ve ever written a dull post on here.

    Sorry about your headache, the hot weather seems to do that for lots of us, and it would be such a relief to have some rain.

    The water lilies look beautiful, and Haakon is wonderful. Such a kind looking boy.

      He is. Totally my friend – we are like an old married couple. Over 20 years together so we both know the score.

    Never dull, Frances! Sorry to read about your poor head – with that and your back you’ve had a rough time recently. I hope you feel better soon.

    Nothing dull in this post! Just beautiful water lilies, beautiful ponies, and as to your headache, I don’t think you’re alone in getting that when the air is thick; I know I do!
