Feeding the Hens, Ambleside – Greeting Card



“The folk were mainly hard-working, self-reliant, cautious, close-fisted, hospitable, humorous mortals”
[The Lake Counties – W.G. Collingwood, p157-8]
In this classic scene of rusticity, a homely farmyard setting provides a wonderful snippet of the daily life led by numerous Lakeland folk, where Alfred shows us a studied glimpse into one of the working traditions of a genial soul – as she brings food for the pecking hens gathering near a bucket and broom, set aside by the large doorway in the foreground.
