Tranquillity at lough Owel Lodge
A fine day in winter is often known as a “pet day”. This image shows you one such day.
At lough Owel Lodge Bed and Breakfast Overlooking Lough Owel Lake just outside Mullingar the colours in the sky were beautiful and I was only sorry I had no guests to share this peaceful setting.The animals all look peaceful and there is no sound except for the train as it makes its way to Dublin and the rushes blowing in the wind.
This would make a lovely painting for some artist who might stay a while and capture the scene.
Christmas is just around the corner and I wonder if the snow will come this year.
Animals on the farm
The animals are going in to the sheds for the next few months and the sheep will be preparing to lamb in another month or so.
It is a busy time for my husband feeding the animals and making sure that they keep well as they prepare for motherhood.The first time mothers need the most care and encouragement
There is great expectations of things to come and we all look forward to the spring and the new life it brings.This is the most rewarding part of farming to see the new born calves and lambs and to help nourish and keep them safe as they make their way in the world.
