It’s been an odd week as we have been away in Kent for part of it, staying in a lovely farmhouse in the Weald of Kent where I could have taken photos of a pretty pink dawn sky or a valley full of mist – but neither at the right time for this week’s post.
The area we stayed in was completely dark at night – no street lights, no security lights – just the moon and stars. And nothing really to take a photo of outside (as you couldn’t see anything) so… what to post?
What struck me before the midnight hour on a couple of nights was the noise of sheep in the fields next-door to the farmhouse. Their bleating was so loud I wondered what was causing the distress. A fox? A badger? Talking to our hostess she explained that it could have been either, or the fact that they’d moved fields, or just been shorn, or lost a lamb or… well you get the idea, sheep are apparently very nervous creatures and the slightest change to their routine upsets them and they become very, very vocal!
I can’t say they kept me awake for long though. And I hope you like the photos of the sheep in daylight! A black rectangle would not have been very interesting 🙂

Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day. If you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world. This week is between 23:00 – 24:00. I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.
