each and every october... we have a trio of sandhill cranes that visit our field! today, i had the opportunity to see one of them dance! he burrowed his beak into the earth and with all of his might, jumped up a few feet... i understand they can jump 12 feet and flutter their wings. i also read that several do this at a time... wouldn't that be quite a sight?
in the first picture, look between my lipstick colored hollyhocks... and you can see one!
the honey bees are alive and well in our hives. they're enjoying our white heath asters.
we look forward to plenty of honey in the spring.
like the rest of the world... we're watching the incredible rescue of the chilean miners. such an amazing story.
