Joli décor pour ces "tondeuses à  gazon".
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Martine. Thank you.
I like the way the processing adds a greenish cast to the wool. It gives it a really interesting look.
Ginnie Hart: Wait. Is your monitor calibrated correctly, Michael?????
They're all happy just eating. Good shot.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Jacquelyn. I think they eat for a living. smile
Such a peaceful scene, Ginnie! Your processing is just wonderful - as usual!
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Elizabeth. Welcome back!

This is such a wonderful picture. They have more 'eye' to the grass than anything else. I wonder if they even noticed you. Great shot.
Ginnie Hart: I actually took a wee video of them, MLMA, and, yes, at least one of them looked straight at me. smile Thank you.

They are distracted by their eternal ontbijt
Ginnie Hart: Eternal ontbijt with no bacon???? Oh NO!

I hope Alan looks in here today - I bet he has never seen a greenish sheep!
Ginnie Hart: You're the second person who has said something about the greenish sheep. Hmmmm. Now I'm wondering if my monitor is calibrated correctly?? smile
beautiful shot, Ginnie. they do not seem to be minding you.
Ginnie Hart: Only at one point did one of them look at me, Ayush. Of course, I tried to look non-existent. smile

Oh, my heart is melting- I love the sheep, but nowadays it is a rarity to see sheep on our meadows.
Ginnie Hart: These are often next to the windmill in Woudrichem, Philine, where Astrid gets the different flours/grains for her bread machine. When sister Ruth and hubby Don were here recently, I stayed with the sheep while they climbed up to the top of the mill with Astrid. We always called the sheep "brethren" when we were growing up. smile
I notice that one of them has gone for a parting down the middle Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I noticed that, too, Chad. grin
Such a beautiful pastoral scene Ginnie! Well done indeed.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. Sometimes we need to just "cool it."
They are very fine sheep. I am not anticipating seeing any sheep today and hope Alan will not be disappointed
Ginnie Hart: These will probably be the only sheep I see today myself, Bill. And, yes, hopefully Alan will be pleased. smile

Oh wonderful smile funnily enough, I'm looking at this in a cafe in Sheep Street! Very appropriate smile looks like they are ready for shearing.
Ginnie Hart: I must have know that, Alan!!! grin
I think you might have added a bit of yellow or green to your mix for processing. I like it a lot but yes there is a tinge of added colouration in the sheep.
Ginnie Hart: There is definitely a tinge of something, Mary. Now I need to figure out what. HA!

pretty green everywhere!! are sheep friendly? did you pet them? i would want to smile lovely shot!!
Ginnie Hart: Sheep are very friendly, Elaine, but, no, I did not pet them. There was the fence dividing us but I tend not to touch animals in the "wild" if I can't wash my hands shortly thereafter. Weird, I know.
One for Alan's scrapbook, I bet he knows what breed they are. Re the slight tinge of green I haven't got my monitor calibrated but I do often find a slight green cast creeping in on colours similar to these sheep, and that is from more than just one camera, I wonder if it is an idiosyncrasy of digital.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Brian, the processing I use does have a "tea green" hue to it, so I guess it makes sense. I just hope all my images don't look green when they aren't supposed to!

Dutchieland - where sheep are kept as pets. A pastoral scene.
Ginnie Hart: The thought makes me smile, Louis! smile
An interesting tweak, Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: "Interesting" is one of the words that can mean just about anything, Tom! Hmmmm.
so calming for mid-week! I do have to admit...they look green on my screen too! But, I don't have the answers, ha ha!!
Ginnie Hart: My "tea green" texture is obviously living up to its name, Robin. smile I'll have to decide if I need to change it. But the sheep do NOT look green on my screen...laptop or iPad...or Astrid's either. Hmmmm. Go figure.

The sheep don't look green on my Pc, but the sky and the wooden fence look a bit greenish. I like it!
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad to hear it, Philine. I was beginning to wonder if I needed to rethink my strategy. smile

I love pastoral scenes, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Pauline. smile
What's for lunch? Grass (again).
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I love it, Larry.
Just enough wool for me to knit you a pair of socks this Christmas!
Already August, can you believe it?!
Ginnie Hart: Already the second half of August, you mean, LC!!! I would LOVE for you to knit me a pair of wool socks. Oh, would you, would you, would you??? I'm size 7-1/2, in case you need to know. smile

Contented sheep!
Ginnie Hart: Sheep never seem to have a care in the world, Ray, no matter when/where I see them!
