Winter Collections

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Along the roadways bulky white plastic bags have appeared as the careful work of Earth Day gatherers. Knowing that they contain the winter "leavings", I glance over at one that has been torn open and notice many aluminum cans. Now why would folks toss soda and beer cans into the pristine woods? I can understand if paper items fly out of the back of a pick up truck occasionally, but glass bottles and metal cans? Come on, people. Soon it will be like Mount Everest or Yellowstone National Park. emoticon emoticon emoticon !
There's the green grass of a hillside meadow peeking through the trees. And in many a!
I "hear" William Wordsworth again this year: "I wandered lonely as a cloud that floats on high o'er vales and hills. When all at once I saw a crowd, a host, of golden daffodils..." After all the snow that lingered until this past weekend and the days of flooding, I'm just drinking in the rich Spring colors, sunshine and warmth.
We'll have kale in cider with onions and garlic; asparagus; carrots; cheese and sweet potatoes tonight. Veggie days help us get ready for gardening.
This morning we also had a visit from our newest neighbor...a five-day old infant boy. Though he slept most of the time, he did open his big eyes for a look around twice, as we adults had coffee/tea and cream scones. What will he think of all that country road trash, as he takes "walks" in a baby pack in a few months?

    I am so thankful for the people who volunteer to clean up the roadsides

    Ugh. It is troubling that some do not care. I only walk in the city, but see so many gang sprayings destroying property. They do not have life inside of them.
