Absolute Bliss!

By DicksPics
These images were taken in the Walled Garden at Attingham Park, near Shrewsbury, yesterday.
This little piggy was totally absorbed in foraging for lunch!!
V3 is the original that V2 was cropped from.
I think they are Tamworth Red pigs but stand to be corrected; I should have read the information provided by the National Trust!
Many appreciative thanks for all views, votes and comments on my ‘Flaming Dahlia’ upload!Smile
I will be off site for the next week as we’re off to France until next Saturday.

Wonderful detail Richard, they have a fantastic education in France, by the time a child is three they can all speak French. (Oh take no notice of my ramblings)
