The milkweed may well have been a friend to the valley’s pollinators, but from my perspective on this particular day, it was simply a thankfully vanquished foe; and as to next year? Well, we shall just have to see, and I believe that I have learned that milkweed moderation may well be the key.

    I don’t know why it is, but my heart soars whenever I watch our white birds fly; though honestly, I know that these beautiful white creatures are really not “our” birds. They are free birds, who just happen to call our creek valley home.

    Thankfully, they are both still young, by horse reckoning. It really would be quite impossible to imagine one without the other. They may be two, but really they are one.

    So, it seems that even though I might be quite content without so much heat and humidity, some things in the valley are certainly thriving in all this wet, and this is what brings me to the ironweed. These towering purple plants have been amazingly abundant and colorful this year. They have truly caught my attention.

    I could never have imagined that there was such a thing as a tractor parade, much less that being part of one would be a true highlight of my life, but some things are just meant to be.

    Life never ceases to amaze me, not just my life, but all life, all around me. In time, both the front porch and hillside crowing stopped. I went out onto the porch and reached into Pete’s cage. He stepped up onto my hand, and I told him how much I loved him. He leaned into my chest, quietly.

    The 80-year-old, 1,600-pound, ram type, Van Norman milling machine fell into this last category. It had obviously been left outside for many years and most of its moving parts were no longer moving. For less than the price of its scrap, we simply could not walk away, and so we brought it on home and set it at the front of Greg’s shop.

    The rain seemed to pause for just a moment. I stepped out onto the porch, listening to the thunder rumbling off in the distance. The sky to the north of the valley was washed in various shades of darkness, but to the south I could see a hint of brighter skies to come, just beginning to work their way toward the creek valley. I decided to go for a walk.

    There is an old sycamore tree, down by the creek, just off the southern edge of our land. It stands well over 100 feet tall, and the base of its trunk is almost as wide as my arms can reach.

    My father, for a reason I am just beginning to understand, always loved crows. If given even half a chance, he would launch into an affectionate discourse on these intelligent black birds.
