These stone hedges are as old as the hills, and they seem to divid the land in patchwork like square as if one were making a quilt. They add to its loveliness





These little black faced darlings are a part of the landscape, and are fearless of the roads!



A close up of the fine workmanship that when into each of these stone hedge....



Wow...what an array of beautiful earth tone. The earth colour when I left Canada..WHITE! LOL



I saw these little twins in the middle of the meadow ...They were so picture worthy.




I now know where the saying comes from..".I 'm on the top of the world, looking down on creations."





What would the world look like if the sun was setting and a castle was lit, and you were standing right above looking down
"Only in my Dreams, could I ever imagine such a thing" UK, you are breathless!!

Fantastic colours and compositions. The twin lambs are my favourite especially the one on the right. Hopefully the weather will pick up in the next few days and you should see some blue skies.

The stone walls are called dry stone walling because no mortar is used. It's almost an art form and you should see better examples in the lake district.

What lovely sets of images you are posting - it's great to see parts of the UK seen through 'fresh eyes'.

There's even a Dry Stone Walling Association https://www.dswa.org.uk/about-us/ . Lots of events in May, might even be one or two on your itinerary so you could see/photograph one being built.

"...what an array of beautiful earth tone." - Thanks for the reminder of what's under out noses. When you live here, you can take so much for granted. However, seeing earth covered in white always gets the pulse racing.

Keep enjoying yourself, there's a lot more loveliness to come!
