Ugly spring

The old ugly tree.

A very long life has given the experience that haste, less speed
it’s not always best to be first in spring
some night frost of the early spring can tease all plans.

A winter storm over a year ago gave some bruises and wounds
but just like last year so is the old ugly tree spring frisky again
soon there are thousands of tiny bright green leaves.

Perhaps the philosophy to meet the challenges from there they come
not at all the worst to do – instead of sitting down and wish to be somewhere else.

The old black sheep trying to protect the old ugly tree well
it does not allow cats to climb the tree
this morning had the old “queen” not reached its morning toilette
but was too curious to stay inside.

Sheeps are really a large part of the life of the moor
and the key for the survival of the moor.


The sheeps have an eye for many things – even strangers on mountain bikes.

Sheep numbers in the area are keep falling,
but if they disappear completely the look of the entire moors will change drastically too.
