SURPRISE in the HEATHER


If you viewed Daddy Jim's post
the other day
you would be now all primed 
and 
knowledgeable about heathers.


For me the beauty of heather
is always a moment of sheer bliss.


We walk down a trail
up a slope
around a corner
and
before us is this
mammoth field of heather.


I bury my nose
without any worry 
that the bees might sting
or
that a stump
may trip me.


The joy of fetching
of searching
of retrieving
outweighs
any possible danger.


See what I mean.


My love of life 
my pure intrinsic needs
though basic
are
what makes me tick.

Namaste !

    so well done for sniffing him out Sophie :-)

    1. Just a wee bit of colour enhancement to make the heather pop.

      Mr. Orangie was hiding dutifully and it was taking some time to find him.

      Heather is always glorious when you can stroll through the beds and stop and smell the roses, oh I mean, heather!

    1. My original colour just didn't do it for me Craig. I needed some punch and we got it. Sophie approved!

    1. Hello there ~~ you are FAST aren't you! Sounds DOODLE fine to me. SO your kitties have a say in what's going on in your world too. I control this world to the nth degree, don't let them know will you.

      The ocean is calling me now and I want to run on the beach. I have 3 to choose from and as soon as 1 Dad gets back from an auction we are heading for the sands and water. I body surf sometimes, love it.
