Sheep in the paddock blending in with the colour of the grass

Worth a Word Wednesday: Blending in

 Wordless Wednesday – now renamed Worth a Word Wednesday   These sheep have taken on the fashion advice of ‘blending in’….they match their surroundings very well. One of the joys of living where I live is seeing the lambs start off as snowy white and gamboling all over the paddock, then growing older and losing their newborn look as they start…
