A VERNAL SHEARING


Last night in celebration of the Vernal Equinox or in high hope of a sunny summer my dear Mrs H a shearing and took twenty years off me in the process.

Her reward for doing so, was that this morning I found on the bathroom floor her missing ear stud and I shall look for my reward later......

Wishing you all the joys of a wonderful Spring and a great Summer.

  2. If it is anything like it is here where you live you may live to regret that shearing and search for the woolly hat!

      Enjoy your weekend in windy Brixham

    1. No. The snippings were put outside for the birds to line their nests with.

    1. Thank you Snapdragon, that is one of the nicest comments I have ever received, if not The nicest comment ever!
      My mother was always telling me " Never get old Mel" so perhaps it is that through that I discovered the secret of eternal youth :-

  7. I think it may well be, she did occasionally have words of wisdom ;) and now you continue those words of wisdom to the younger heron generations :)
    May you always show your true "bright" colours as they shine bright in our lives x

  8. Good work, Mrs H! I have recently done the same for Mr K :-) I'll bet she was pleased to have her stud back too. I hope the reward was a good one...

      As to the reward, I shall remind her of that too. For it is still to be given......... !
