Winter Sheep

This guy stood still and let me photograph him from the truck.

This is a common sight on the road to our place, but I never get tired of stopping for the sheep. Sometimes there will be a couple of males butting heads – wow! These photos were taken in Syringa Creek Provincial Park in BC. City folks might be surprised at the size of these creatures: an adult male sheep standing next to my SUV can look me in the eye almost level. You must not get out of the vehicle for a closer look, even though they seem tame.

Autumn harvest time in Blueberry

Unfortunately the frost got to our tomatoes before I could harvest the rest of them. We planted a little late this year and didn’t get the best results. Next year my daughters and I will plant the tomatoes and pumpkins at our summer cabin, where they have plenty of sunshine and space to grow.
