A Misty Morning


Crows, a woodpecker, a mourning dove, a wild turkey, a rooster, songbirds, raindrops dripping from the trees onto barn roofs–the sounds of a misty morning walk.

Last night’s rain will bring seeds to life.

Miracles are fixing to happen.

    Beautiful and haunting photo and words. It’s like I am there. Thanks for sharing.

      Glad it resonated with you. I was walking back from feeding the goats in the front pasture and I was struck by all the beautiful sounds on such a quiet morning.

    Lovely, Bill. And again, so lovely to have you back.

    Some folks would look out the window and say,”dull, drab day” and give it up. Here’s to finding and appreciating beauty and being thankful.

    Same here. We’re debating whether to bank on climate change, and put in seeds now. It’s folly, really. It’s still March and the traces of snow remind us that winter is still very possible. Still, a rainy March Monday makes us dream of spring.

      I know what you mean. Last year I put out a bunch of transplants in mid-March and we had a late freeze that killed a lot of them. It’s getting a little warmer every year but spring is still unpredictable (here at least).

    Hi Bill,
    Beautiful picture. I so love rainy and foggy days, sometimes I think I may move to Seattle (or back to Lithuania where it always rains). Yesterday it rained here all day, and we needed rain so badly, snowfalls were low this winter and all creeks were dry. So my boy insisted on going to the woods. We walked over waterfalls, slippery hills, and through rain and last year leaf filled creeks, sinking us to the knees. The earth worms were out and he ‘saved’ probably 50 worms from being crushed on the path, and then announced that he was having the best day of his life. Sometimes you watch how a city looks drab, grey and sad in the rain, but out in the woods it is so alive, rain only makes the smells stronger and the colors brighter, and of course, the farmer’s hear happier. It’s really magical and sometimes so under-appreciated. Wishing you good growing rains.

      Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a day. It’s great that you see that your children get so much time outside. Sadly that doesn’t happen enough these days.

      You’re right about how alive nature is on mornings like this one. It was the symphony of natural sounds that grabbed my attention.

    The sun’s just now burning off our misty morning. Waiting for the dew to dry means a later start to work, but more time to appreciate photos and words like you’ve offered this morning. Both are beautiful.


    • Bill says:

      Thanks Linda. We had another misty start this morning. It’s so pleasant outside on mornings like that. It’s just a matter of time before the mornings (like the rest of the day) will be steamy.


  7. Ah, look how green the pasture and just in time for St Patrick’s Day, too!
    Are you a month ahead of time this year as well, Bill? As AV said, do we, or don’t we start with the planting? Take a chance on no frost and catch the moisture while it’s still here… Flip a coin?


  8. Ahhhhh….SPRING ♥

    Bill, misty mornings have a mystical feel about them, don’t they. Sound seems to be magnified during a foggy day. Smells are wonderful during a misty foggy day. I can almost smell the earthy smell and feel the dampness from your picture.

    Have a great mystical walk in the misty woods.
