There is something unsettling about a windless day in Oklahoma. We've gotten used to the invisible rushing wall of sound, the deep sway of branches, the frenetic movement of leaves. To just barely catching hold of our hats as they lift up and off of our heads.
This is not to say that days with no or little wind are under-appreciated. We crave them! They are the days when it's quiet enough to think. When we can accomplish the tasks that require calm, such as laying weed guard over the garden beds, working with dirt, mulch, or hay, replacing the plastic on one of the greenhouses - and for taking photographs.
Bird sightings: two pigeons have found the abandoned owl box in the rafters of the barn. Where did they come from and how did they find us? Will they stay? And, well-hidden among the leaves of a diminutive winged elm tree in the southern pasture we found a beautifully constructed nest. Tucked inside were four wee white eggs dusted with the finest brown spots. I believe they are the eggs of black-capped chickadee. The single Black-headed Grosbeak is still here.
