The Weekly Bleat: Green and Pleasant Land
Some of you who read this blog may remember my fondness for England. It’s because of my time spent there as a student that I came to love so many aspects of that “green and pleasant land.” One of the memories I treasure is the beautiful Scottish Blackface sheep grazing in the fields and meadows. It was this lovely, bucolic vision that inspired me to have my own sheep in Virginia. Not only do these majestic animals bring joy and enrich our lives, but they are a daily reminder of one of my most favorite places. When I look out the window, I feel as though I’ve been transported to some charming village in the Cotswolds. These sweet sheep are my little piece of England.
