Welcome, welcome! It rained enough last night that all things are pacified, even if not completely satisfied, and that's good enough for me. The earth is humming along, the crickets are tuning up, the birds are singing, twittering, calling, burbling, doing all that which birds do vocally and it's so quiet I can hear the flutter of wings when they take off from a nearby branch.
I am almost afraid to go out to the garden, knowing that it is full of ripe vegetables which should be dealt with. No matter how well you water, there is nothing like a good rain to bring things along. Weeds included.
It is going to be a good day. Owen is coming over and we shall have adventures, I am sure. We shall let the chickens out today since we're going to be here although I am not sure at all what I think I can do about hawks. Yell a warning? But somehow, if I am here, I feel safer about letting them roam. I am considering the possibility of getting some guinea hens. My neighbors used to have some and I loved the way they walked in a line, uttering their rusty calls. They got picked off, one by one though, as they traveled and now there are none.
Did you know that guinea hens can keep a yard free of ticks and fleas?
Well, Owen is here and ready to rock and roll and so it is.
He and his mama are already out with the chickens and so I must go too.
It's a good day in Lloyd.
Be well. Love....Ms. Moon
