Are You My Mother?


The warm, sunny afternoon has the bees buzzing around the sunflowers, and the red corn burning brightly. I’m dying to see what these ears are going to look like when they are ready. The whole corn stalks are a dark maroon.


And this poor little chick. This morning in the mad dash to get outdoors, it ended up with the wrong mother and siblings. It did all right, keeping up with the much bigger chicks of this other mother. They are several weeks older. If I could see his real mother, I’d snatch it away and put it with her, but she is way off in the thick brush somewhere. Maybe it will sort it out tomorrow.
