A Simply Glorious Day

Keren and Dori walk the 3 miles from the Farm down the road, just in time for an early morning "Bird Walk". We started out looking for Birds, but the Birds are quieter now. Instead, we focused on the rich tapestry of Plants unfolding. We found the Earth's radiant Beauty at every step and turn. We didn't want to miss a thing.
Every day on the Land is like no other. Something is always fresh and new. Other things are worn. Something is always rising. Other things are falling. I guess that is the Dance of Life. Everywhere we looked, we found Stories of the Land.After our Walk, we headed inside for our Breakfast, which I called an "Art Project". We used Nancy Burrow's Recipe for Crepes, whom I love and which I love. Our palette included numerous embellishments, including: Blueberries, Black Raspberries, Peaches, Strawberries, Fried Apples with Cinnamon and Honey (similar to what Aunt Lu used to make), Bananas, Pecans, Honey, Molasses, Edible Flowers to top it off. Each one of us created our own Breakfast Art. No 2 were the same. That was fun indeed. And we devoured them, lickety split.Afterwards, we headed out to the Garden to do some weeding. We did it principally because it needed to be done, but nevermind, we are also having company on Tuesday. The 4 of us are experienced Weeders, having spent many hours in gardening and having fallen in love a long time ago with Gardens. I am amazed how quickly we went through a substantial part of the Garden. I think the Garden was amazed too. The Plants just smiled and nodded their Thank Yous.

Later we had a late Lunch. We sat underneath the Austrees and enjoyed our nourishment from the Earth. We enjoyed sharing Stories and the Company of Each Other. It is always beautiful when Someone we know and love (Keren) expands our World by bringing in Someone Dear. And the fact they came to help in the Garden was just the Frosting on the Cake.While we 4 Humans pondered these things, the Sorghum Cane continued to grow tall and expand those Seedheads into the Sky. Yes, it was a simply Glorious Day.
