a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

A Walk...

was long overdue for me. I headed to the fresh dirt where Dalton has found his spear head.  I dawdled. At the risk of sounding like Martha Stewart, that's a good thing.
Part of the farm pack joined me.
I discovered Blue Heron tracks,
very large compared to the dog tracks.
I didn't find an arrowhead but I found a worked tool.
What a wonder to hold history in my hand.
The pack had to explore every smell around
and enjoy the water.
 I made a big circle by the spring through the garden, by and over the creek, through the cow lot and back to the yard.
This was my last shot as I climbed the steps to remove my muddy shoes and wash my hands, renewed again by the beauty of the land around me.

As my husband says, " There is treasure everywhere." It sounds like your walk was one of those treasured moments that just happen. 3 more little trees have come up. :)

You're very fortunate to live in a place where you can take a spontaneous walk like that surrounded by your animals. Be sure to count your blessings.

What a great place to walk and enjoy the sights and smells of the country... I almost had a cow when I was reading your blog...I didn't have the screen at full, so I was panning down picture by picture...and you had the blue heron footprints, and the next of this round blackish object in your hand...OMG..where did my mind go??? HA HA. what can I say, I was born on a farm too! Have a great day!
