When the Rain Tumbles Down in July

Spin the wheels forward and reverse, turn the steering wheel at different angles, get all drenched in the non-stop storm, give up and call a friend, untangle the big chain, make sure to keep the tractor nowhere near the ute, have a play with the buttons – otherwise known as a ‘regular collection day in July’. With a bonus this year – have the hens come give us a push ??? - or actually enjoy the bounty of worms and roots and seeds dug up in the tracks!   At least compared to our July 2020 post, we are getting much better – bogging only one ute at a time, NOT all three tractors AND the ute ..read more

“I have eaten the [grasses] that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold” They may be cold but they are delicious. Frosty Arctic blast with the salad bar for the chickens now open, plenty of rain and the sliver of sun, inviting to green pasture. #frosty #salad #poetry #farmlife #pasturedeggs #pasture #wintergrass #eatgrass —from the poem “This Is Just To Say” by William Carlos Williams, slight modification by Hilltops free range -Photography by Yana ..read more

Komorebi: translation by photography

Komorebi (木漏れ日): 'tree,' 'escape,' and 'sun' put together in one word. The untranslatable Japanese word, which is easy to translate - pictorially - on the farm, on a frosty winter morning. It means the light that shines through the trees, that intricate interplay between sun and branches.  The one that author C.S. Lewis called “shafts of delicious sunlight” and “pure and spontaneous pleasures”. How lucky the chickens and us are, to enjoy them.   #pure #pleasures #farmlife #images #untranslatable #Japanese #oneword #delicioussunlight #translate #winterlight #eggs #pastured #lightandt ..read more

Making Beauty and Throwing It Away

"…so Nature’s wastefulness seems quietly obscene.   It’s been doing that all week: making beauty, and throwing it away, and making more.”     The chooks and us are trying to catch the beauty, and the fallen fence, very, very quickly, all week: beauty of the moment, before it is thrown away, to make some more, and again and again.  #beauty #throwaway #pastured #chickens #bluesky #clouds #pasturedeggs #themoment #farmlife #liveinthemoment    —from the poem “A Color of the Sky” by Tony Hoagland Photography by Paula ..read more

Undressing In Winter

“Aren't you cold and won't you freeze, With branches bare, you winter trees? You've thrown away your summer shift, Your autumn gold has come adrift. Dearie me, you winter trees, What strange behavior, if you please! In summer you could wear much less, But come the winter – you undress!”   With our youngest flock, watching the bare arms of our winter trees, and wondering: Australian native trees undress their bark, European planted tress undress their leaves: why, indeed, in winter?   #trees #undress #winter #eggs #pastured #pasture #farmlife #wintersun #chickens #poetry #farming #p ..read more

Your Nose

“Be glad your nose is on your face, not pasted on some other place, for if it were where it is not, you might dislike your nose a lot. Imagine if your precious nose were sandwiched in between your toes, that clearly would not be a treat, for you'd be forced to smell your feet. … Within your ear, your nose would be an absolute catastrophe, for when you were obliged to sneeze, your brain would rattle from the breeze. Your nose, instead, through thick and thin, remains between your eyes and chin, not pasted on some other place— be glad your nose is on your face!” The most magnificent nose – in m ..read more
