Appreciating Our South African Sheep Friends

P has wanted to get a lamb pretty much since we first got Pasqualina — in fact, when looking for a buddy for her, we almost got ourselves a little agnellino. But we got Margherita instead, and we’ve stuck to goats ever since.

As we say in Italy, though, “mai dire mai” (never say never), which is why I always enjoy gorgeous sheep photos like the ones sent to me by my new friend Barbara Philip in South Africa:

Along with an eye for great sheep photos, Barbara is also a fantastic artist. You can see her work at Silvermere — fabulous paintings of birds, landscapes, flowers, wild cats, gardens and buildings, and much more.

This is one of my favorites:

You must go and browse — and buy, if you so desire. Not surprisingly, many of Barbara’s wonderful paintings are already sold, but there is also a great selection on sale, and she is constantly working on new additions. Simply *gorgeous* work.

If you want to take a virtual trip to South Africa, I can’t imagine a better host than Barbara at Silvermere.

Thanks so much for sharing, Barbara!
