Grass, Water, and Trees

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



Springtime in the woods of eastern Christian County, KentuckyThis photo was taken on the Jeff Adams Road in eastern Christian County. This area hasn't been touched much by the hand of man, lately. I think the farmer uses this land as pasture for his cows. He will probably log it sooner or later. The land on the other side of the road has been recently logged.

Not far from here, I saw a wild turkey in the woods. I stopped and backed up to get a better look at her (I think it was a hen.) She hunkered down in the fallen leaves for a moment and then she decided to make a run for it. She sped off through the trees and over the hilltop. I guess she was afraid she wasn't well enough hidden.

Along the same road, on the outskirts of the little hamlet of Honey Grove, iris are blooming in front of an old homesite.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
