One of the ways I mind my mental health

A quiet house again this weekend with only one junior shepherd left so feeling a natural melancholy and realising it won’t be long before I’ve a very empty house. I find the very best way to still my mind and bring calm is a walk-in nature, and apparently there is research emerging to show that spending time in nature is very good for mental health.

Particularly lovely on a day like we had today is to walk down by the lake. Our farm is on a lake, called Derry Lough, years ago a local angling club used to stock it with trout, that was before my time. Nowadays very few visit it so its thriving with birds, and various other flora and fauna.
