There’s Dancing in Those Hills!


Dance of the Oaks

The California Oaks dip down to meet their partners from the adjacent hill and are met in kind by another grouping of ancient trees creating a beautiful melody. The barbed wire fence rises and falls marking the time in rhythm like a metronome, while the clouds dance above changing the tempo according to the will of the wind. Golden tinged hills dictate the form of the musical production using their solid structure as the base to which the dancers can cling. This view of oaks and hillside grasses dance with the tumbleweeds and the sky, creating a fluid symphony of blue, gold and green. Life on the roadside is a beautiful dance. I rocket along and my moods sway, undulate and rise and fall according to the natural score just outside my window. How lucky I am to glimpse the ballet in movement, to see the dancing in the hills!

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
