Walking - and stopping

The village of Ellerhayes seen from the Killerton hills in Devon. I don't imagine this scene will have changed much over the centuries.Our walk wouldn't have taken quite so long if GrandDaughter hadn't insisted on stopping at each group of dock leaves to pick one.
Or on throwing HollyDog's stick for her.
Do you like our matching buttercups behind the ears? (And, yes, I know she's wearing a pyjama top but I didn't realise when I dressed her.)

A sweet series of pictures, and how delightful you seem to have another dog-lover in the family!

It's an astonishingly timeless scene. No wind turbines, no McDonald's, no by-pass, no polytunnels. A wonderful sight.

That's a great big stick. I hope George didn't get his teeth stuck in it. The landscape looks really beautiful :-)

Beautiful photos, Liz! And yes, the walk may have taken longer, but so much more enjoyable with Granddaughter leading the way.
