grazing sheep

Look at what I came across a few days ago: an enclosure full of woolly creatures ♡

I took the pictures while precariously standing on a stone wall with a very uneven surface… For a while I even contemplated the option of getting inside the enclosure; in the end I discarded the idea because of the unpredictable reaction that the creatures may have had and the wall and my outfit would have not been suitable for a quick retreat.

I was even shooting some short videos, but my free WordPress site won’t let me post videos!

Can you guess where this was taken? It’s in England and is a former Roman town…

    Hmm, Bath? That’s the only former Roman town I know in England!

    Ha, looking at future socks and sweaters? I wonder….might this be somewhere at the Hadrian’s Wall route? However..London used to be a Roman town as well. So I covered three quarters of England so I must be close;0) Thanks for the lovely photo’s, ♥ Johanna

      Dear Johanna,
      Both could be a good option, though this one was taken in Bath, near the local university 🙂
      I couldn’t believe my eyes as I passed by on board of a bus, and I had to go and check it our later on!
      I so wanted to jump in the enclosure and try and cuddle them a bit… not sure whether the creatures would have been too happy about it!
      Have a nice day! Hugs from judith

  5. Reblogged this on KnitWhit (with a pen) and commented:
    We all know how I love sheep & England so I had to share these pictures from this fellow blogger. Enjoy!

  6. I am suddenly hearing Baroque music … “all we like sheep…” “His sheep may safely graze…” “He shall feed his flock…” I usually think of flocks on the Judean hillside. But now, I can see the imagery and symbolism is not limited to a far-off, foreign land.

      Susan, thank you for bringing up some exotic imagery 🙂 Isn’t it great how many different images can this little cute creature bring up in our mind?
      Have a great day!
