A Quiet Winter Night

Night Garden Shed

The winter is so much different than the summer on a farm. In the summer you’re working outside as long as you can still see what you’re working on. There is lots of hustle and bustle with the wildlife trying to get a meal down before they hide out for the night. It’s actually pretty loud! Even after dark we’ve had screech owls teaching their young how to hunt in our back yard. Coyote families start howling in the evening and as early as 4:00 AM in the morning too.

I look outside this evening wishing it was lighter out so I could get some work done for spring preparation. But then I notice the beautiful view and the stillness of the evening. It should be enjoyed now before spring hits, requiring my undivided attention!
