Wild Pixie and the Ginger Cows

Some days are made for walking and this is one. Pearl light from the early morning sun bleaching out the distant landscape and bringing close up into focus with bright colour. The air is still and the distant cathedral bell calls across the valley. Closer the dry feathers of small birds rattle in the autumn air and smaller bell tones of light, bright linnets and blackbird song complete the symphony of this morning song.
Walking up the hill we find an anvil stone where yellow beaked blackbirds and speckled thrush break the fragile shell of unlucky snails to pluck out the meat.

And on the side of the hill in the autumn rusted bracken we find that the longhorns are back, medieval beasts with curving horns and thick coats of such beautiful colour.

Some days are good.

Great to hear East of the Sun has some more interest! I think it is just fantastic.
Love the cows.
Take care,

You blend into the foliage almost perfectly in the last photo. So lovely!

St. Davids is definitely on my list of places to visit next time we come to Wales -- which sadly, may not be for a while. I have three favorite blogs that I never miss reading, daily. Yours is one of them.

Those long haired curly horned beasts look gorgeous! They seem very intrigued by you...
