if I am quiet …

and I sit without movement, there is so much of the natural world all around me.  The mother robin has been giving everyone hell for days.  I assumed she’d built her nest in the old apple tree.  I forgot that even mother robins have innate techniques to lead the animals and giants away from the babies.

ImageShe has them semi-hidden in a tiny conifer on the side of the herb garden – only a few feet off the ground.  This makes me think that she is inexperienced or that the old ginger cat is gone.  Now that I think of it, I haven’t found his fur on the seat cushion on the front porch.  I’m sad.  He belonged to everyone – choosing Andy’s back steps in the afternoon, Scott’s tractor seat in the morning, and I believe that he slept on our porch most nights on a comfy rocking chair.  I’m told he sauntered over to his original house two doors down for meals.  I’ll miss you Mr. Tabby cat.

Today’s Buzz:  the bees seem to highly favor my almond flowers, but I am told that almond honey is of poor quality and used mostly in the baking industry!  What!

  1. In the frenzy of moving for the past couple months (!). I have missed all of your wonderful blogs. So glad to have a computer working and the time to sit and reflect on the beauty and wisdom of your blog!
