Trees needing planted along the riparian zone this day had only me to do the work because everyone else had other important stuff to do.
So I loaded the John Deere Gator with seedlings, a couple of shovels, and extra rain clothes to stave off the inclement weather. Then I had to load the dogs because they were begging.
During the wet, rainy and cold day, I paused and realized my day alone was not solitary. The dogs were guarding the trees and Gator, the herd cows were close by just in case I decided to feed them some hay, and a couple of bald eagles were cavorting around between the hillside and the river.
There may not be good conversation going on, but it was an enjoyable day out along the river.
