I did mow out by the tipi today, I noticed the state of the Queen Anne's Lace, it is almost spent. The milkweed has well eaten leaves that are now turning brown, but the pods ensure a fresh stand for next years pasture. Butterflies are still flourishing, the field is alive with butterfly wings. I'm happy we didn't mow this summer.
Tonight is September's full moon. My good friend, Beth is coming to stay the night in the tipi with me. Under the full moon and with the glow of a campfire inside the lodge, we will talk into the night. I'm pretty sure we'll hear the owl and probably the coyotes, the crickets are sure to be singing as well. My dogs will also keep us company. Jessie the lab is alert for any unusual sounds, running out to check and then coming back in when things are safe once again. The little dogs snuggle close on these cool nights. A nights sleep in the tipi is like sleeping nowhere else. Sweet dreams all, under the light of the moon.
