Hare Today, Gone Tomorrow
Yesterday the dogs found this baby hare up by the barn. Luckily Wills and Kellogg got to him/her before they did any harm, and they placed it in the safety of our (as yet) unused hen house, with the idea of releasing it later when the dogs were elsewhere.
I took it down to a spot where I'd previously seen young hares, laid it down on the grass and it just looked back at me for a while. I gave it a little encouragement, and off it went like a rocket; a lovely sight.
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
