Working with his shirt off

Today has been a glorious March day. In my previous post, I posted a photo of the front of our house with Les peering intently at some stones in order to determine which one to pick for building the wall. (Yes, he and Fred do pick up the stones individually, fitting each one to the wall, before returning to the pile to choose the next likely candidate.) Well, today being such a beautiful day, with bright sunshine and no breeze, Les decided to work part of the time with his shirt off! I think that Les must have a very hardy constitution because the rest of us had two or more layers of clothing on!

I did not take a photo of Les with his shirt off because I felt I might have been invading his privacy, but here are some photos of lovely sunshine in the Lakes today, including a couple of photos taken from our home, Blenheim Lodge.

Bright skies overhead today! Lake Windermere and the fells as seen from our home, Blenheim Lodge.

And here are some more recent images of the beautiful Lake District over the weekend.

I love the expression on the sheep’s face! ‘Off to the side we are being watched.

Come and enjoy the Lake District with us soon. Who knows? The sun might then be hot enough even for most of us to sun ourselves!

    Thanks for your comment. Glad you liked it! Just had a funny thought: wouldn’t it be odd to suddenly find a sheep wandering on Singapore’s streets today? Over here, it is common enough in some areas as you probably know.

    Sheep wandering on the streets?? Perhaps in our dreams, my friend…but it would be fun if that really happens.

    Isn’t it great to be so close to mother nature, my friend!

    Have a wonderful and prosperous day ahead always~ Cheers!! πŸ˜€
