On the Sixth Day of Christmas

On the sixth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying

One cheeky goose,
No golden rings,
No calling birds,
No French hens,
No turtle doves,

But a partridge in a pear tree
Eight wooly pigs in a straw heap!

Reed Stooks,
Goose and Wooly Pigs

along the shores of Lake Neusiedl,
Illmitz, Burgenland

  1. My goodness...wooly pigs!! This is something new for me. Very interesting, are they a Swiss breed? The goose is positively looking distainful and seems quite opinionated. The stooks are nice to see: been some time for me since I have seen them.

    Very grand collection of wonderful photos, Merisi.

  2. LOL: You are wonderful :-)

  3. It's been a long time since I saw Sheaves like that.

  4. This straw is amazing. And those wooly pigs...hysterical. Good luck with the search!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
