England with a side order of clouds

A BIG thank  you to everyone for your comments on my posts while I was away.

Here are some big cloudy Sussex skies…

Clouds are a great topping for everything:

For hot horses in a field,

Horses

For my sister, the archer,

Arrow

For bringing rain to the soft emerald hills

Flower field

And for thatched cottages

Nestled in cozy valleys.

Sussex skies

    I enjoy the archer shot – as I live in a houseful of archers. My ten year old son & husband were both taking target practice in the yard this afternoon.
    I also smiled at the label on the water for hot / muddy dogs and boots. 🙂
