Little House on the Suburban Prairie

By SongofJoy
February 16, 2012

America has become a nation of suburbs and now exurbs. There's no getting around it. More Americans live there than anywhere else these days. But does that mean we all need to have a parcel of ground with a solitary shade tree in the front yard and a patch of lawn to manicure? I hope not.

I simply can't resist (ask Sharon) Big Grin

"To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,—
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do
If bees are few."
-Emily Dickinson

Seriously, tho, what an undertaking!

Fortunately, my bees love me. They do more work in a day than I can do in a month (or more).

Thanks for reminding me to look for this picture. I love my Carpenters as well.

Thanks ... and I miss being able to take good distance shots. I don't take the time to study the settings well enough. Always in too much of a hurry. But the macros takes care of itself. Green Grin!
