My walk was a bit different this past Wednesday June, 25th. I was (don’t laugh!) chicken sitting for a good friend so she could go on vacation with her family. Well, chicken sitting includes ducks, parrots, cockatiels, guinea pigs, 3 small dogs and 1 very large dog. So I took advantage of being someplace new and walked the trails on their small farm.
Here is what I saw.
I was going to take a picture of this pretty mushroom and I spied a snail!
I love snails…..
I love earthworms but you don’t see them crawling around in the day very often. It has been flooding pretty much all week. Perfect worm weather.
Fungi, much like the worms, love this weather!
They pretty much took over this tree…..
As I was walking along I noticed suddenly everything was silent, including my footsteps. Looking down I saw I was on a path of wet pine needles. These silent footsteps made me think about Indians. Caddo Indians (those native to our part of the state) must have been the quitest Indians EVER. ‘Cause I KNOW if I can walk in silence they must have been beyond silent. If there is such a thing as beyond silent. The point is there was no noise.
I look forward to chicken sitting again. 🙂
