Hellooooo my Darlin Dears, Fellow Meadow Creatures & The Gnomes that climb the cherry trees and drop fruit down into my basket,
Miss Lamb your Squash picking and pickle canning farmer here:)
Yesterday I visited a cherry orchard:)
Me and the old men gathered our baskets and headed out towards the mountains...
Behind an unsuspecting Antebellum style white washed house, was no fewer than 20 cherry trees:)
In my mind, I thought Cherry trees were past their prime as far as harvest goes in Oklahoma...
But by some miracle of the bountiful goodness in life, these trees were attached to a magic vein known as irrigation, & for some reason were late in ripening :)
Goodness gracious did I have a lovely time...
I filled up my basket....about 10 pounds:)
I canned some, made some pies, sold them whole in bags & woke up with them growing from my head:)
It was bound to happen really...
I assume that when something makes you so happy, it can manifest it's self in soooooo many magical ways...& in my case, I have been taking on fruit:)
...& dreaming of barns with hay lofts, greenhouses & raised beds;)
At least it works well with my current state of mind, when it comes to art:)
Today was a moment in time when it comes to Early Bird Acres...
I sent my very first cow to slaughter...
His name was Buford the Bull, and when I first got him he was an angry and scared bull..
By this morning, he was eating out of my hand and let me kiss him on the nose:)
It took 5 months yes, but it happened all the same:)
I cried a bit, but I was able to maintain my composer and thanked him for his giving of life and I sent him to the butcher knowing that he had a wonderful and happy life:)
A bit ago, I decided if I was going to be a meat eater in this sweet old world, I wanted to eat my own animals and know that my animals were happy:)
The earth will one day consume us to....in a plane of existence where joy can abound and the circle is unbroken, time is irrelevant :)
I hope you are doing well today....I really do:) & know that I love you and I send a kiss to your sweet forehead :)
