The leaves danced.
They whirled and flitted
and whispered to each other.
They embraced the sun
As I came around the corner,
they saw me
and fell to the earth
hoping I hadn't seen.
Today I went for what might be my last country walk of the year. Hopefully not but I haven't gotten out as much this year. I've either been working (or tired) or the weather has been scorching or raining (no in-between). The farmer who leases the field next to my home has finally plowed.
I remembered where some dead sheep were placed in the brush last year so I returned hoping to find a skull and yes there was!
|Treasures of the day|
I will put it with other bones I have and maybe start a natural history museum...
I was walking along looking for the sheep skeletons when I sensed I was being watched... and sure enough, a few feet away was a face peering at me...
Sorry if this is a little gross, but it was interesting... all part of the cycle of life.
It is supposed to start raining again tomorrow, so I also climbed a ladder and put gooey stuff on the roof where I think water is coming in. (I will know tomorrow if I got it right).
KoKo, is a good neighbor!
She came to greet me as I arrived home.
