Lately I have got some questions about Louise. Some of you maybe know that Louise joined her new friends some weeks ago….
Well, I'll tell you - tête-à-tête - how Louise is doing now.
At the end of summer Louise got sad eyes. She continuously "talked" to our horses, to the birds flying around, she talked to my wife and to me, she tried to talk to the moon, sun and wind……but nobody could understand her. One day we noticed she was looking at one direction and bleating. A few hundred meters away from her - in the distance - was a large flock of sheep!!
Can You Imagine! A large flock of sheep!! One plus one is …right.
First at all, we had to catch our lady. Not so easy. And then bring her to new friends.
Just a few seconds before releasing.....her nose and her eyes do not lie : YES, I SEE THEM!!!
The flock had noticed Louise....
An interview with the BIG BOSS....
An approval of the upper lady...
...and READY. Accepted. There are no objections. Last look at direction where we were standing, saying something like:
"do not worry, guys, it is OK" and "take care" and "keep in touch".... and she was gone.
One little happy sheep somewhere in the middle of 72 sheep flock...
Luckily we can see Louise daily, if she wants, of course.
But .. I am afraid that we have got bigger "emotional damage" than she has got ;)
Maybe you remember a fig monster eating my figs last summer. Looking back, I have to admit, it was not so bad as I thought. It is, however, crazy that still today, I picked some figs from our tree!!!
Probably the very last ones this year. The quality (and the size) is not "triple A" but is just fine and eatable. I made a fig cake , as you can see on the picture. But it is going really crazy: in december, in the Netherlands, picking figs !!!
There are no leaves left, I found only few dead under the tree.
I dried one and I tried to capture its beautifully twisted form ....
Oh, yes, the cake was very good :)
