Thanks you Anonymous Nature
Yesterday, I met a near neighbor - a young farmer who works hard on his land. He didn't waste much time on schooling and has never practiced the deceit that comes without thought with some. He gained my admiration when he talked of his love of the wild flowers we have seen this year, and how he seeks to protect and preserve them for the future.
