Wildflowers & Wildlife
05 May, 2012
The woodland flowers are blooming. My new mission is to find a book on Kentucky wild flowers, as well as edible and medicinal plants. I've found onion down by the stream, and I'm sure there are many other edibles once I learn to identify them.
The deck isn't built yet, but I love to sit in the kitchen with the windows open and have a cup of tea. The birds remind me that even when the sky is gray there is a reason to sing!
There's a sound out here late at night that I haven't identified yet. It's nothing I've ever heard before. The "song" starts on a G, hums for about 3 seconds and then moves to an A, humming this pitch for 3 seconds, and then the song then repeats. Angels maybe?
It is absolutely beautiful here at Anam Cara. I'm learning to sit with the quiet of the place. It's been more of a struggle than I thought it would be. What was unsettling at first, the coyotes howling at night and the lack of "people" sounds, is slowly becoming a part of my regular rhythm. It's a good lesson.
