Here’s one from the article that captures the gestalt of the whole day nicely – coming into the barnyard for the drop off – the day’s work nearly done, for the oxen anyway.

Nice to see this Tricolored Taegeuk on the side of an old Yankee barn, deep in the heart of VT. It’s probably Korean, but derived from the earlier yin/yang symbol that has its origins in China and Taoism. The yellow, red and blue lobes (“pa” in Korean) represent humanity, earth and heaven respectively (which kinda covers it, no?).

We share our home on this earth with a vast number of creatures large and small,* who occupy all sorts of ecological niches around us.

Beavers – that’s their handiwork above – favor streams and marshes, and are second only to man for their ability to manipulate the environment.** They’re mostly nocturnal animals, though you might see one swimming around a pond in the late afternoon. More info on these mammals here.

This fallen white birch was probably 20 feet from a marsh, and 30 feet of so from a stream.

* The Vedas, the most ancient of Hindu scriptures, describe 8.4 million species of life on the planet.

Taken a month ago; at this point, the field may be about chest high.
