Sheep Trending at Hardwick

Shaggy's 'funky-chic'
sheepishly strutting her stuff
trending at Hardwick


I could not resist a light hearted haiku here!

My mental meandering gripe when traveling around the countryside here in the UK is the state of sheep marking...!
"Why do they have to mark those poor fluffies with such an ugly aesthetic!?"
The sheep are not aware of course! ~ I think?
But ~  it does rather spoil my view of the country idyll seeing huge splodges of red, blue,
or black carelessly daubed over the poor little mites !

~ bla~bla~bla

Now here's a sheep worthy of the grandeur of her surroundings,
with her turquoise tufts, and multi-coloured tab-rings
I'm not a snob you understand!
But my Shaggy stands as an inspiration and aspiration to all of her contemporaries,
or should I say country cousin cohort farmers!

Wonder if it's going to catch on, watch this space...

I hope this does catch on! Color is good for the soul.
Awwww - poor sheep with their tufts and tags... But she is beautiful anyway! :) I haven't seen sheep in years! There are not herds of them around here like in lovely pastoral England :) Cute post!

I much prefer the turquoise tufts to the day-glow orange that was trending a few years ago. :-)

Delightful. It brought a note of light and cheer to an otherwise cold, gray, and blustery day.
Sheep---and haiku---are always worth a second look!

we just gave our poodle a bath… and this always makes me think of sheep… she's like a little lamb quivering in the tub. (no silly hair color or tags in her ears though)

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
