Over Hedge and Gate

Taking a break from munching on the sweet grass this cow wondered who was coming down the lane so took a look over the hedge.
Not too far away on a warm April day a farm gate was the perfect place to lean and contemplate the distant hills.
It may not be a case of anyone looking over this gate but perhaps something with a zig zag pattern slithering underneath. When the wooden gate leading onto this woodland path gently rotted away and became more difficult to open and shut it was replaced by this new one. What amused me was the installer opted to use the old notice that was attached to the old gate
Obviously he considered it had not outlived its useful life.

An entry to ABC Wednesday, a journey through the alphabet, this week sojourning at O here

"Beware of Adders." Those who subtract can be difficult too.

I can't resist: why did the viper viper her nose? Because the adder adder handkerchief!

Reader Wil said...

Serpents, snakes and adders I abhor them, but I know that they are shy most of the time. It's quite normal when you walk in Australia to see something slithering away before your feet.
Thanks for your post!

If I saw a notice warning og adders, you wouldn't see me for dust, I am petrified of snakes,
I like the picture of the gorgeous cow peering OVER the fence, such beautiful docile eyes,

Best wishes,
ABCW team.

It's beautiful country. I'm with Trubes, I don't like snakes, and adders sound pretty scary. We have garter snakes where I live. I know they aren't dangerous, but they always give me a start, especially when they are swimming in the lake where I like to swim. - Margy
