the yellow of spring
there are many canola fields, which look yellow and in full bloom, but with a closer look, it's all broken off and bent half up the plant. the deep frost and freezing rolling across the area has "burnt" most grape vines, cherrie, wallnut and apricot blossoms and there will be devastating loss for the farmes with these crops. i has been sad to see some apple orchards collapse under the heavy load of snow. and then still it's spring and life is struggling until it awakens and so will be a next years for many of those trees, a next chance to bare fruit once again.
pickling those bountiful gifts from our chickens...
