The heat has arrived and with it a change in our schedule. Bob and Angus head off for a walk to the Holy Well as soon as it's light. Bob wants to run ahead but is kept firmly on his lead. At this time of the morning the fields are alive with leverets and young deer. The deer are shy and soon duck into the trees but the leverets are innocent and still coming to terms with life. Probably a dozen of them sitting, ears twitching, on the path ahead of us. A simple wonder.
Something about the light at this time of the morning. The wheat, usually golden in colour, glows with a rainbow of reds and browns and greens. Bob and Angus stand and watch the colors shift as the sun rises.
In the peace of the fields the sound of the six o'clock dawn chorus is thunderous.
Home to find Sophie sitting under a tree casting glances towards the collar doves that are strutting, shamelessly, round the swimming pool.
