Shadows And Reflections

This morning I made a good start on clearing the upstairs sitting room for occupation. The many pictures have been stacked up for final sorting – those for passing on, others which have frames that may be useful to Charity Shops, and those which can be ditched. Eventually various items of furniture will find their own positions.

This afternoon I posted:

Later, Jackie and I took a forest drive.

Our first stop was on Brockenhurst Road where ponies often gather and vie for shelter beneath two spindly trees.

An equine Kindergarten was taking place at the corner of Rhinefield and Meerut Roads. It was sleep time for the younger foals.

Further along bright woodland reflections lit the surface of the stream slowly flowing under Rhinefield Road.

This evening we all dined on tender roast lamb; roast potatoes, including the sweet variety; firm cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli, with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden; Becky, Zesty; Ian, Moretti; Flo, Elderflower Cordial; and I more of the Cabernet Sauvignon.


      1. I’ve tried a taste a few times and realized it is not for me. But we all of have things we prefer or not and they are not always the same. πŸ˜‰

  1. Cute the comment on the foal kindergarten. Fun how youngsters of any species need a nap each afternoon. Of course, some of us old ones also like/need an nap each day!

  2. A napping foal! I am in love! ❀️ πŸ™‚
    Your shadows and reflections photos are so beautiful! Nature created art and you captured it so wonderfully in photos! πŸ™‚
    The pony and foal shadows are so wonderful, too!
    HA! The pony nose-to-tail in between those two trees made me laugh! I wonder if he is playing hide’n’seek with the other ponies?!?! πŸ˜€
    (((HUGS))) πŸ™‚

  3. I needed this visit…. I’ve missed visiting, the storm let me without power for 7 days plus. and then it wasn’t just back to normal..everything had changed.. thank you for the drive through the forest…loved it…

  4. Cute photos of the foals. You seldom see horses lying down. There’s something very special about reflections on water.

  5. Your gorgeous napping foal photos have capture my imagination Derrick … into my file they go … my words are already flowing ..

  6. A beautiful, dreamy summer day, complete with dozing foals! Like small children, they can look like they are working very hard at sleeping. πŸ™‚

  7. Your drive into the countryside is a worthy reward for the sorting and clearing done earlier. Apart from enjoying the photographs of animals, I particularly enjoy the peaceful reflections you have on show for us.

  8. Whoa! Thanks for all the horse and pony pictures, Derrick. I know they’re not all just for me, but I do appreciate them!
