Well, summer is officially here. I'm brimming with story ideas, but as I've been working at the animal sanctuary today, and have a new job to go to tomorrow, I hope you won't mind a few photos.
Finally, I found some linseed in flower. Everywhere has been chock full of that dreadful yellow oil seed stuff this year, but the purple is now here. This is my favourite summer sight, I must confess.
A wary chicken. They say objects in the rear view mirror appear closer than they are, so this lad must have been sitting right on my shoulder. He trashed my car soon after, and stole my credit cards.
I managed to get close to a wind turbine today, and found it framed in floofy clouds. Job done.
This lady donkey was attending a wedding at the local church. I think she'd already eaten her hat. And most of the flowers.
The galaxy's most evil chicken. Maybe I should give J. J. Abrams a call?
The camera loved this magnificent lad. Those horns!
I'm not sure if he's dozing off or enjoying a private joke. We may be related.
A little bokeh before we finish. Yes, linseed again. Lovely stuff.
Mr. Abrams was in agreement. May I present (spoiler alert!)...

We got the floofy clouds here today as well....no chickens though, evil or otherwise...well, except for those in my freezer (shhhhh).ReplyDelete
Hey Delores! Chickens in the freezer? You mean the Cryogenic Sith Army?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Indigo xDelete
Oh my cats and dogs it's raining chooks, chomps and cheer me ups... you answered a question I had on my week South; the blue being linseed. It is lovely to see after all that neon yellow. Sorry didn't let you know I was in Cambs... the day was a tad fraught and filled. Wish there was a sanctuary close enough for me to go help... Good luck in the new place.
If you hear a bbbaaawwwwwkkkkkkkkk in the cubicle next door, rethink that plan!! YAM xx
Namaste Yam! Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed the variety of furry creatures. But wait, what? You were HERE?! *pouts* Roth xDelete
I love linseed flowers too, but it's not grown much around here. I think it's too dry. I find that our black chickens are the ones most likely to be bad-tempered.ReplyDelete
Hey Z! I took the picture of the chicken in deep shade under a tree. He looks like I might have woken him up? I backed away slowly... Indigo xDelete
Blue flowers are my favourite and a whole field of them is not something I've seen before - they are beautiful. New job, eh? Well done, sir. And working at the animal sanctuary - sounds interesting; will we get to hear more?ReplyDelete
Wishing you a good week, Mr. Roth.
Hey Jenny! Yep, it's an oil crop, and very pretty. It's only just arrived this past week after what seems like months of yellow-flowering oil seed. I won't be writing about the dogs directly, but there's been some lovely experiences that will find their way into other tales. And thanks for the kind wishes =) Indigo xDelete
Darth Rooster! Yes! As I looked at its first photo, Star Wars-ish dark side music began playing in my head. When I scrolled to the end and saw what you'd done: confirmed.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the others too. Always a delight to see your work.
Hey Bill! Too kind, Sir, far too kind. But yeah, the Imperial March played as he came down the ramp from the hen house... IndigoDelete
"Darth Rooster." BAHAHAHA. These are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Hey Jayne! Thanks, and you're no stranger to beautiful blue/purple vistas at the farm, I know. As for the Sith Chicken, I think he could give Mason a run for his money =) Indigo xDelete
I am dying.... DARTH ROOSTER! I smiled, chuckled and laughed at every animal caption you came up with. Damn that thief chicken. You can't just trust those chickens, can you!ReplyDelete
I don't think I have EVER seen a linseed flower. How BEAUTIFUL they are... one of my favorite colors too.
Your pictures are so wonderful.... keep on snappin!
Hey Katherine! You know, they are shifty little sods, it's true. No linseed in your state? Keep looking, they're elusive here, too =) And thank you, I'll do just that x IndigoDelete
Floofy clouds wants to be gloomy clouds according to autocorrect. I prefer floofy.ReplyDelete
Lovely pictures, my friend. :)
Hey Dawn! Thank you, tho there's often overlap in my photos between floofy and gloomy =) Indigo xDelete
You are such a talented devil. Nice pics, sir.ReplyDelete
Hey Dufus! Nice to see you here Sir! And thank you, you're too kind. And polite. And Canadian. I knew I liked you! Roth (no kiss for you)Delete
I agree - wonderful pics!ReplyDelete
Wouldn't mind a print of the galaxy's most evil chicken - I like the contrasts going on there.
Hey Ms. Scarlet! Well, drop me a line, then...Delete
I just might do that!Delete
Please do, it'd be my pleasure.Delete
Stuck on goat with magnificent horns, it's a magical photo, Indigo!!ReplyDelete
Hi Diane! The goats are cheery lads, and full of mystery. And, as you say, those HORNS! =) I look forward to the painting! Indigo xDelete
