Dove Cottage, Grasmere and a lot of weather
Finished at last.
After a lot of putting in taking out of sheep and a whole lot of weather. As I said in another post, heavy weather and the cozy clicking of windscreen wipers are what I remember most about my childhood day trips to the Lakes.
Consequently it is a bit of a wet and blustery vision I have snipped of the cottage with Mr W himself watching that flock go by, though they look lively rather than leisurely, I'm afraid.
So here it is again, that inspirational fragment from To Sleep:
A flock of sheep that leisurely pass by,
One after one; the sound of rain, and bees
Murmuring; the fall of rivers, winds and seas,
Smooth fields, white sheets of water, and pure sky ...
Far too cold and wet for bees , murmuring or otherwise I think.
As usual the picture above has lost some details, it not being the same proportion as my camera shots and me being a non-cropper (still).
So here is the unadulterated version, adulterated by bits of masking paper round the edges.
