We seem to be moving slowly these days. We have decided that there is no need to rush and expend extra energy just getting from here to there. We are learning to practice economy of movement by first plotting out our intended course and rarely straying off on a tangent. Why work up a sweat if it can be avoided?

    The treasures are lovely, but then one thoughtful child wonders if we should take them home with us or leave them for the fairies. I smile to learn from my grandchildren. Perhaps each child should choose just one small thing and leave the rest for the fairies who had so carefully collected them.

    When we set about to sell our city house, I carefully packed up all of our treasures into boxes, that I stashed away in the barn once we had moved to the farm. As the years passed, I would occasionally climb up into the loft and bring a box down and sort through it.

    I hear Greg starting up the tractor. It occurs to me that I really should get up and get moving. I really should tie up the tomatoes and prune their suckers and there many more squash and cucumber ready to pick. Yes, it is time to get up and get moving, but just for a moment or two on this morning, time really did surround me – and stand perfectly still.

    So, the next time you run across a pristine patch of orange daylily, smile and join me in saying “My, orange you lovely,” and then reach out with thanks to gather a few of their petals and pods for your next culinary adventure.

    New flower heads will bloom, and the honeybees and butterflies will gather their pollen and nectar all throughout the summer. Yes, it really is a matter of perspective, and my, how my perspective has changed.

    She had been living in the creek valley for the past 15 years. She had spent 15 summers munching on whatever she came across during her slow but steady explorations, and she had never traveled far. She was both a creature of habit and a smart creature, remembering where she had found delectable tortoise fare during her past years’ wanderings.

    We later learned that a tornado had actually touched down in a town just up the road, and a friend and her coworker had been trapped by high winds inside the library where they worked. Thankfully, nobody had been had been injured

    Greg claims that he has built his last creature habitat, at least for a while. Even though the rain may have finally stopped at least for a few days, and the garden and fields are just starting to dry, Greg is ever so ready to leave farm chores behind and head on down to his shop where he can get back to work on his mechanical treasures.

    The ground did not have the slightest chance to begin dry, even a bit. There was no way I could step out into the garden and plant the last of my starts. The ground was way too wet. Perhaps gardening should wait for another day.
