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.
