When The Cows Come Home

The cows are back in the field alongside our garden again.

Some are trying to help us keep the grass in check.

Some just find us fascinating.

This one was a bit shy at first

Although she did pose nicely for me between rubbing her head on our willow tree.

I love them but Stan’s not quite so sure.

Very distracting from our home office when this is the view…..

………and not only for us

But I can think of worse ones.

    I wonder if it’s you they find fascinating, or the cats starying right back?

      They seem particularly interested in Flo – maybe because she’s black and white.

    • #3 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:31

      They probably think she’s just an ornament – she was shocked into staying very still when she saw them that morning.

    If I could see them from office window, I’d be staring at them all the time. It would be hard to get any work done. 😉

      You’ve put your finger on it there Laurie.

    Oh that is WONDERFUL!!!! What fab-MOOOO-lous views you have!

    • #7 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:29

      I forgive you 🙄

    If they give you a different view they might give you some nice fresh manure too. I do love cows!

    • #9 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:27

      Yes, we are surrounded by manure of all description. In a good way.

    I do love cows, especially nice satiny black and white Friesians. Perhaps they think black and white Flo is a lost calf, and wonder why she’s not bawling for her mother…

    • #11 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:27

      I think they might well do. She’s not playing that game though and is a little overawed by the size of them.

    They are so amoozing!
    (Sorry!)

    • #13 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:26

      Apology accepted. 😉

  7. #14 by sew2pro on May 31, 2021 - 21:21

    Moody-looking, aren’t they?

    • #15 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:25

      In a nice way – not mean and moody.

  8. #16 by tinaor on May 31, 2021 - 21:21

    Cows kind of look cute but they are rather big close up!

    • #17 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:25

      They are but I’m more scared of horses.

  9. #18 by lifebyacompassnotaclock on May 31, 2021 - 22:24

    What an amazing view 🤩

    • #19 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:25

      It really is and that’s getting to be quite a rare thing in the overcrowded South of England.

      • #20 by lifebyacompassnotaclock on June 9, 2021 - 13:15

        My Aunt uncle and cousins live in England

      • #21 by tialys on June 15, 2021 - 08:59

        Whereabouts do they live? Have you ever visited?

      • #22 by lifebyacompassnotaclock on June 15, 2021 - 09:18

        No I’ve never visited and was going to last year but you know what happened 🤦‍♀️

      • #23 by lifebyacompassnotaclock on June 15, 2021 - 09:18

        My Aunty and uncle live in Croydon

      • #24 by tialys on June 15, 2021 - 09:53

        Ah, I know Croydon very well indeed.

      • #25 by lifebyacompassnotaclock on June 15, 2021 - 09:19

        One cousin lives in the country but not sure where 😅

    Takes me back to my childhood!

  11. #28 by Born To Organize on June 1, 2021 - 05:49

    Now that is a view! Wow, Lynn. The cows are gorgeous. I love the gentle eyes and easy-going nature.

    • #29 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:24

      They are a calming presence with their big brown eyes gazing at us over the fence. I’m glad the actual milking sheds and the rest of the ‘business end’ is a way down the road though.

    Your life is one long, lovely episode of the Archers.

    when I was 13, we spent a few months (Feb – June) in a rusty mobile home loaned to us by a lifesaving fellow villager, whilst we were between homes. The corner of the caravan jutted into a field that was used by that year’s young heifers. They would take it in turns, queuing in a surprisingly orderly fashion to scratch themselves against the pointy corner. This in turn rocked the mobile home – it gave us quite a turn the first time it happened, and I never quite got used to it!

    • #34 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:20

      They certainly are huge creatures close up aren’t they – luckily they are benevolent, although I think I’d still have felt a bit uneasy inside the mobile home too.

      • #35 by DawnGillDesigns on June 10, 2021 - 08:47

        we learned not to keep anything fragile out!!

    What a wonderful scene you have shared, some of the cows look quite photogenic and the way they have lined up sideways for your pleasure and of course ours, the viewers.

      Life gets in the way sometimes doesn’t it.

      • #38 by cedar51 on June 9, 2021 - 20:43

        Thanks for understanding

  15. #39 by Susan Nixon on June 6, 2021 - 22:49

    That looks like a lovely view!

    • #40 by tialys on June 9, 2021 - 12:14

      It is Susan, we are very lucky.
