Walkabout Wednesday

Tina Davidson

I could write a short novel about the wonders of today’s walkabout! It was simply amazing! The birds were singing all around us. We saw blue jays, a woodpecker and a hawk soared right next to us! We marveled in the wonder of the great Sycamore tree and gathered it’s twigs, bark and seeds.

In the backyard we saw the milkweed dying back and recalled the importance of these plants to the Monarch butterfly. Marching on, we came across a vole laying on the ground. We discussed everything we could about this small animal. After observing it for some time, we left it on the ground so it could complete it’s cycle and return to the earth.

What a day! For me, it’s the stuff dreams are made of!
