050714 Aestive Cows

By July 5, 2014zBlog Archives

One of the joys of visiting the countryside (and in my book, there aren’t many) is the way the cows are free to wander around. The country driver needs a little patience as cows ignore hooting, shouting and banging on the side of the car. I think we can say this scene is “aestive” (‘Of or belonging to summer; hot, burning’, OED) – the cows only ramble freely during the summer months, it was a hot day and a minute or two after snapping this scene, those two little black cows became particularly aestive (in the hot, burning sense) thus delaying us even further.

Day #184 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
