The creek rises and falls, the seasons come and go, and it now seems that after 16 years of walking beside the creek and working the valley’s ground, I have begun to understand just a wee bit about this country life.

    It was a chilly spring day, but from past experience I knew to dress for the weather. I finished my morning farm chores, packed up my marbles, and after a quick goodbye peck on Greg’s cheek I drove off, heading up to town for the day. As I unloaded my table and began to set up my mibs, I smiled at the now-familiar faces I have come to know from years past.

    So now I am looking forward to meeting our new rooster and introducing him to the hens. Perhaps this fellow will lazily live to a ripe old rooster age, or perhaps, like his predecessors, he will be a valiant protector. I am realizing that such are the ways of the creek.

    Several years ago, Greg and I drove two hours east along the river to an old schoolhouse where a very special woman, Edelene Wood, was giving a talk on wild edibles. Those of you who often read my stories know that I rarely mention names, but Edelene is so wonderfully worthy of mention that I have broken my steadfast rule.

    The dogs are our constant companions, the horses ever so friendly, the pigeons beautiful, the chickens and goats adoring, the rabbits so softly sweet and our cattle happily dance, but the ducks? Just the other day, we were given three more to add to our current number.

    I can’t quite figure out why, but all of last year’s farm organization seems to have disappeared over the course of the winter. I suppose that is why spring follows winter, and that is why they call it “spring cleaning.”

    She is headed home now, but I think that I’ll just sit here on the floor for a while and play with the marble machine. To this gray-haired Nana, it is almost as magical as handing her rocks to toss into the creek. And yes, I am still smiling.

    I realize that many folks may have fond memories of their laundry hanging from lines with grass growing underfoot. My fond memories are of playing on flagstones with the shadows of laundry lines fluttering high overhead.

    Spring is close, though still officially a few days away, but the early whispers of change are just beginning to touch the valley. I have seen the daffodil and daylily shoots just starting to push their way up through the muddy, brown soil.

    I could not help but tell the proprietor what a beautiful granddaughter he had, and he thanked me and told me that her mother worries that the child might break the things in his shop, but he smiled to tell me that if anything were to break, then only he would be to blame, because he had simply not put it far enough out of her reach.
