A lazy-bed is a small field for crops traditionally laid out on the hills of the Scottish islands. To me it is a metaphor for being creative, taking care and looking to the future.

Wool in the Spring
Today I read in Trouw about a flock of sheep and lambs with their shepherds Bos and Arends who left yesterday on their way from their pen in Drenthe to the city Groningen. A journey of 10 days, from farm to farm through the wonderful landscape. Having arrived in the city they will munch the grass on the roadsides. Making the trip on their feet and not in a lorry is to attract attention for the need of sheep flocks for ecological maintenance of roadsides and fields. I hope they will succeed in that. I also think about the healthy wool they will produce later!
What a great initiative...
