On my morning walk, I stopped and talked to the girls…that’s three of the four Auracanas. The closest one there doesn’t have a name but she’s a talker and doesn’t like to be touched. Behind her is Dali, named after Salvador, of course, because she has a funny mustache. Behind her is my good friend, Princess Beyonce. I couldn’t ask for nicer company to share my walks with.
Then I spied a fairy ring. I’m not a bit surprised seeing that it’s the day after Beltaine, or May Day to most people. I imagine the fae were quite busy. And here they danced.
Then then I met a dove in need. She was a bit beat up from an encounter with a cat. (Not mine!) I checked her out and put her someplace save with food and protection. The boys think I can just pick up birds. I don’t want to disappoint them.
The dove led me to a tree where I discovered some morel mushrooms growing.This is the most special tree where we celebrate the Winter Solstice. This is the third time I’ve discovered morels growing on the property. Each time in a different place.
So I picked the mushrooms (and said, “thanks”) and looked around for more.
There were only two but that’s plenty enough to share with the boys. They gave me an idea for breakfast.
The morels needed some eggs, which the girls gladly offered. One of the silkies is setting on a few eggs so it looks like more chicks are coming. Yay!
As I walk around I found these pretty robin eggs in a perfect little nest. They are the most amazing color!
The eggs and mushrooms needed some fresh asparagus, which is finally up. Sweet and juicy from all the rain.
Lastly, we just need some fresh chives add a little flavor to breakfast.
I used the cool little egg basket I found at a flea market yesterday to gather everything. We went to my cousin’s baby shower yesterday and stopped by a flea market on the way. We had a wonderful day with family. This little basket was essential for today’s morning walk.
I love spring!
