Plant something…

Too many honkers?

“Ten times as many Canada geese spend the winter in Oregon as they did 20 years ago. Now instead of one subspecies of Canada goose, the dusky, there are seven. Now, instead of the 25,000 geese that wintered in Oregon, there are 250,000…..”  Agriculture & Geese

faith in renewal, in rebirth……

Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart. She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger. She calls her family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth.” Hugh Macmillan, Rejuvenescence, The Ministry of Nature, 1871

Photography: Garish History

Someone recently put a coat of paint on this old structure. It sits amid homes built in the 50’s and 60’s, homes that gobbled up farm lands. This is the last vestige of those farms…some early rendition of a duplex with narrow garages. At some point, power was wired in. But, this structure has not been occupied in the forty odd years I have driven by. At least someone values it enough to add the garish colors. Of course, I wonder who lived in these cubicles. What the view was on an early morning as they gazed East across the land.
