we've been seeing wildlife and not-so-wild life everywhere these last couple of days.

A sweet bird posing for us on the moors in the rain. I don't know what species he is but he was very posey.

A family of ducks waddling across the road as we explored very narrow roads hoping not to meet the farmer in his 4x4.

Wild Dartmoor ponies taking a short cut across the road.

Another day, in another place, a wild rabbit frozen in fear...

...of being caught for dinner.

A free-range cow wondering what on earth we were doing.

A brand new life.

And butterflies chasing us around fields.

At home we have our own wildlife... situation.

Snug as a bug in a... sweater sleeve.


  1. That is serious cutness overload! I love it!

  2. You have wild *ponies*?!?!?!?!! Too freakin cool!

  3. I love it - great pictures!

  4. great pictures, Barbara, thank you for making me smile. I miss my cats seeing your kittens, and home in general. Can you do something about the weather though? It looks so wet where you are, too!

    The sun is shining inn Germany, though... one good thing about being here! :-P

  5. Awesome! I love wildlife! Such neat animals around where you live. We have possums & ducks and that's about it! And I'm just not to fond of possums! LOL! I LOVE the wild ponies!

  6. I love the wild ponies - it's looks beautiful where you live. xoxo

  7. Barb,

    I am ashamed that its been so long since I have been to your place, what a beautiful post to see when I came in.

    Your blog is one of my all time favourites - you are blessing to all of us who have been lucky enough to find you.

    I told Sally last night that when I make it to the UK I am going to see you and this amazing place that you live in. I would so love to see George's special place too. I just want to place a seashell from Christian's beach there.

    Willing, wishing, hoping and praying for you x
