This hill reminded us of Hobbiton. Can't Post

My daughter and I were out walking by a lake near her apartment when we noticed this hill.

It reminded us of Tolkien's drawing of Hobbiton:

"For DORA BAGGINS in memory of a LONG correspondence, with love from Bilbo; on a large wastebasket. Dora was Drogo's sister, and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she was ninety-nine, and had written reams of good advice for more than half a century."

That is strikingly so! [In reply to] Can't Post

How cool is thatSmile.

And i just picked up a couple of, this era of books at a used bookstore for a dollar apiece. This actually is the one i originally found, finding the lotr's.

That picture gives me a great feeling actually. Thanks for zooming it in.

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."
J.R.R. Tolkien

It needs something... [In reply to] Can't Post

I know! It needs to have one of those lovely full trees transplanted to its top! Smile

The trees are moving! [In reply to] Can't Post

That's good enough for the distance shot, Aunt Dora! Smile

Oh my - we could then add a door and windows around the sides, and a road coming down towards us, and the road in front could become The Water...the imagination runs wild! Laugh
