Making Hay

While the Sun Shines
I hope you all enjoyed Spring for those few weeks while we had it. I suspect that now we will have summer until the end of September, when we will have a few weeks of Autumn and then jump to winter. The settled weather means it's time to plant beans, lots of beans, squash, cotton and more melons. Living on a farm is kind of living in borrowed grace for a few moments at a time. This morning it was a flock of birds come to rejoice that the hay was cut. The birds danced and flitted, like synchronized swimmers, in one heartbeat between the orderly rows. An extravaganza of exuberance for which I had a front row seat. A special showing that only I was witness to.
