A nice day, Bok, and Zara.



When the hay has been cut and taken away, it's almost as if we have an infinity lawn.


And here is one of Bok's very favourite people. Bok used to live with little Zara's family; it was her mother who eventually decided that he should come to live with Monty (and us).

Zara comes to see him quite often; she only lives about 300 metres away. Bok is always so happy to see her that he becomes overcome with excitement.

She's one of those lovely children who is completely without 'hang-ups'. She comes to the house, says hello, sits down, has a chat, plays with Bok for a while, then says goodbye and moves on.

If only all children were thus.

    1. There are 5 well-spread-out houses in our tiny hamlet, and we now have 8 children all under 13 (Bunny has yet to arrive). They all get on very well, but some are more polite than others. Little Zara is the friendliest.

  4. With no fences how do you know the boundaries of your land? Such a lovely vista you have and such a sweet neighbour coming to visit her old friend.

    1. Nowadays they drive big metal spikes into the ground to mark your limits. All you need then is a metal detector.

  6. I am sure it is a treat to have such a lovely and well mannered child to visit. There are not many children where I live and I miss the sound of of kids playing. I am thankful that I get to see my grandchildren often.

    1. With 5 grand-SONS, we are very keen to have a grand-DAUGHTER. Girls are so much more affectionate. Little Zara is proof.
