    I love it too :D You’ve done a fantastic job with the colouring… it looks freezing too (lots of layers of clothing also have something to do with that!!!). Buster’s very lucky he doesn’t have to walk on that pointy cold hard ground :D

    Gee… I wonder why its called Rock Top!!! lol I used to tell Zac that these types of places were rock farms, where they breed rocks for city gardens!!!

  • It is a prolific rock farm indeed!

    Looks like she killed it and is taking it into the woods to bury it.

    Sorry. Dark thoughts today. Bad.

  • oh dear, I wouldn’t put it past her though, Lawford. Well, only if Teddy was really bad, that is. No, not true at all. She accidentally pulled dolly’s leg off in the bath and after I fixed it she apologised to dolly and gave her a cuddle.

    beautiful work Anne… love the composition …. so is she allowed back home yet?

  • lol, she wasn’t really in a bad mood, just a bit disappointed I think that the promised ‘animal farm’ we were visiting turned out to be a couple of not so tame sheep, a couple of not so tame ducks and chooks, and a couple of dogs that weren’t allowed out while we were there. :o)
