More of the same

More of the sameAnother chill but sunshiny day today. I had forgotten to get my anti-Rook device in after the bin man came yesterday so I grabbed my coat and mittens and the camera and walked down to the gate with the dog to get it back. I fitted the polariser again and tried dialling in a couple of stops exposure compensation.

I like today’s pics better but had to darken them just a little in Lightroom. I conclude that when using the polariser I need 1 stop compensation.

The larks are on the wing again, it’s a wonderful sound. I’m a little bored with this field on our Western boundary. I look forward to seeing something on there soon but it’s clearly far too wet yet for ploughing. IIRC it was barley last year and neeps the year before that so perhaps we shall see it seeded with grass for hay or silage this year.  That will bring back some unhappy memories, unfortunately.

We started our day today with an Unfortunate Rodent Incident. Having discovered yesterday to our horror that a wee beastie was visiting our car and had chewed through some of the electrical wiring, we laid both bait and trap last night. This morning on opening the boot, Mr L found the wee unfortunate, alive and cowering and trapped by its hind leg. It made a bolt for it and exited the car, with trap attached. Suzie, old , lame and blind as she is, took command of the situation, followed the rat and nipped it on the back of the neck with great precision, then sauntered away as though nothing untoward had happened. There is life in the old dog yet!

We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
