The Day the Sky Came Down to Earth

The shallots I planted last July are blooming now, and replacing the lost nodding onions up on the hill. The sky has noticed. Welcome, Sky! These blue beauties were in the mariposa lilies on the hill today, too. It’s a fine thing to bridge the earth and the sky like this!

Keeping the Earth alive is within our means. This lily had a large bee and a very small one both burrowing around in the pollen, at the same time this big blue wasp landed. With the cattle off this land for ten years now, the lilies have more than quadrupled in population. Together, we can still sing.
