Watching


I was watching this wonderful fat and fuzzy rainbow the other day, we have so many rainbows here on the hill and they are all individual, you wouldn't notice that if you didn't see them so often.  One day I could see the beginning and the end of the rainbow all from one window in the house it was amazing. 
 
My camera can never do them justice, but occasionally I like to try.
 

 
Just after I was watching the rainbow I caught Ginger watching the chickens.  He sat there for around fifteen minutes just watching ......

 
... and looking down at my feet there was Rosy watching Ginger watching chickens :-)

  2. Too funny, everyone's watching somebody! I've got three-week-old chicks and we've named one of them Ginger.

    2. Thats such a striking hill in the pictures! I love the shape of it. I imagine it would be quite a walk up the side of there!

  5. On your first picture I can distinctly make out the remains of ramparts on the hill side. Looks like there might have been some ancient fortified hill fort. (maybe iron age?) I wondered if you had ever been up there for a walk. It reminds me very much of an iron age hill fort that we have very close to where we live. - That rainbow in the picture is beautiful, and your animals look very content.

    1. We've not been up there yet, but it's known as Monk's Hill and it is said to be where the monks from the dissolved Maenan Abbey were hurled to their deaths. As far as I know there are no fort remains up there.

  6. Would Ginger like to do more than just watch, do you think? You said, in a previous post that one had flown across the fence - would they be able to get away if she did decide on "chicken tonight"?

    1. They all get out and about over the fence at the moment during the day and head for home at night!!

      LH is currently putting the finishing touches to Chicken World which should curtail this thank goodness.

      NO Ginger has never and I really doubt would ever hurt any of the chickens even the small bantams. He is brilliant with them and if they come close to him he moves away from them, as do the dogs, once you've been pecked you don't go back for more :-)

      We teach all our animals to treat each other as family and it has worked with everyone .... up to now!!

  7. I can make out the ramparts as well - is it a Hill fort? Would not be surprised :)

    Love the watchers, watching :)

    1. I can't find any record of it, our neighbour is a history enthusiast and she has never mentioned forts in the area but she has told us all about the hill.

  8. A great post. I love the soft, misty Welsh rainbow.
    You have chosen a beautiful place to call home.

    1. I do :-)

      Something that's with you when you're working hard, that carries all the tools of toil and the weight of the world needs to be a colour that makes your heart sing!!

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
