Perhaps you could listen to this song whilst reading this post... I was riding through the fields today with the weenies on the ATV. Looked at the brambles (wild blackberries) that have grown up on the backside of our fifty acre wood. They'll need to be brush-hogged or they will take over the field; create a thicket akin to a hedgerow that can't be mown down. Driving alongside the woods, I looked where the mayapples will be growing soon. Next to those, the morel mushrooms grow for about a week around easter, but though I have looked and looked, I have never found one. I think the deer and wild creatures find them first.
Since we don't ranch or have cattle, pine trees have been growing up across the fields and I like that very much. A beauty to behold. Ranchers would never allow them as they would shade out pasture grasses and plants to feed their animals.
I stopped by the ponds and cast a few slices of bread upon the waters, but no feeding fish. It was warm so I thought perhaps a few takers would come to the surface. The turtles I so love are asleep on the shore under the mud holes they have dug.
The birds are singing loudly today and one I couldn't identify louder than most. I walked in that direction, trying to see it, but it moved farther away and I never did catch a glimpse. I have found a lost parakeet and love bird before on the farm, so I wanted to make sure it wasn't another lost bird. Of course, the crows had to caw annoyingly loud about my goings on. How anyone ever sneaks up on anything is a mystery to me. I think maybe the unknown bird might have been from the woodpecker family. Just a guess.
While I looked about the place, this song came to mind. I chose this version because it lists the lyrics. Joni Mitchell is a songwriter that comes around only once in a lifetime. She had an aneurysm some months ago. I haven't heard how she is doing or her prognosis. Sad. But, the seasons do go round and round and I can do nothing to slow them down.
