I had a visitor....

in my Garden! I could hear all sorts of strange noises coming from the back garden, thinking it was just some birds making a scene, I went to check it out and was stopped in my tracks by a .... Sheep! She was tucking into the weeds that I had just cleared into my wheelbarrow on my patio. I thought she had come through from the field behind my garden but there were no holes. Before I had a chance to think what to do she casually swaggered off back down the lane back into the field at the end!

As promised here are the photos I took in Antwerp last Friday evening, we had a lovely dinner in one restaurant and then had a sublime dessert in a little patisserie! The evening sky was truly this most amazing vivid blue.

I'm busy working on an upcoming article for Oh My Handmade Goodness as well as searching for and ordering lots more supplies. So it's all go in this crazy sheep filled village! Coming up next are photos of a wonderful toy store! See you soon, Hugs, Catherine x

Awww... bless her... she doesn't look like a scary sheep from behind!

I love the idea of posting 'Garden Visitors' in general and think I may do it - just spent ages identifying a greenfinch (am not very clued up!)


Heather said...

That is hilarious!

You should read:

Three Bags Full: A Sheep Detective Story

Maybe she was there to spy on you!

At least she was eating the weeds and not your plants! She must have wanted a change of scenery!

Beautiful photos of Antwerp.

Hugs, Sarah x
