We were over working on some fencing needs
Off and on all day yesterday
We were in the rich pastures
And along the bottom of the hillsides
Back and forth, checking fences, bringing things needed to repair them, bringing trash back home
It was a good feeling to be out in the golden world,
The air was spiced with the mix of weeds, wild alfalfa, and corn pollen
The sun warmed the day and a cooling breeze kept us refreshed
The air is full of sounds of fat pollen-covered bees, nasty grasshopper wings, and the fluttering of butterflies.
Then over-head, in the middle of a large color muting cloud, was the first of the big winter birds; the Canada Geese!
Winter is not far away now.
Welcome Back You Big Beautiful Birds!
