P and I walked through our back hedgerow and stepped over the broken stile into the high pasture behind our house for a picnic. This is the view across the valley. Today I noticed for the first time that there is a frolicking green water dragon whipping through the field that abuts the river! This landform is a very auspicious feng shui feature besides being graceful and lovely.
Grazing near the water dragon ( which is a stream or underground vein of water essentially) was the herd of cows with babies. And surrounding our blanket were the plants that feed the cows.
Interesting that plantain, red clover, and dandelion are all good medicinal herbs for humans too. On the right is the perfect floppy light blue hat made by my friend E's aunt in South Africa and brought back by E's parents.
