we went to the OU campus for a free outdoor Iron & Wine
concert yesterday. he is such a wonderful singer/musician,
but the concert crowd was so rude. we could hardly hear the
music over all the talking. this was not a rock concert, but
just a great voice with an acoustic guitar. what a lame shame
that so many people lack concert etiquette.
that's a roadrunner in my back plot! he snatched a little
lizard and took off with his lunch. i hardly ever see roadrunners,
much less in my backyard! but we do live in the wild, so i shouldn't
be too surprised. i thought this was a gift from nature and i'm glad
i got some pictures of him! we've had a lot of bird activity,,,
red-wing blackbirds, cardinals, woodpeckers and even a
crane is hanging around the back pond lately!
wild harvesting has started.
(i love spring's bounty)...
both yarrow and plains onions grow on my property and all over the
surrounding area. so my sister and i enjoyed a cup of yarrow tea and
we cut the tiny onions into yogurt. i added the mini onions to feta meatballs
in the evening. i love that we can do some wild harvesting right out back
on the southwest oklahoma plains!
yarrow has many healing properties.
a little goes a long way when it comes to herbs and other edible plants.
here's a lot more info on yarrow in case you're interested:
to a healthy spring week!!
