Shady lane refreshing…

I like dirt roads. As I pass, I like to see the trace of those who passed before. I like to leave a mark and carry a bit of that road with me as I go.

And there’s something about stirring up a cloud of dust behind me that makes me smile.

Shady lanes, refreshing,

To some weary soul each day,
Friends or foes who pass my way.

Begger’s Gift

Last winter, I fussed at the squirrels on my bird feeders. They made a terrible mess throwing seed here and there. But, this summer, the only flowers on my deck are from the seeds the squirrels scattered in my planters. The beggers left me gifts.
