11.11.39

Very fine weather, as yesterday. Birds all singing almost as though it were spring. Notice that horse dung of some mares & their foals out in the fields is extremely dark, almost black, presumably for being out at grass with no corn. Added another sackful of leaves. [Total on facing page: 6.]

5 eggs. Sold 1 score @ 4/4. Total this week 45.

    Today for George/Eric is the 21st anniversary of Armistice Day of the Great War, the war to end all wars. He must feel a bitter sense of irony that Europe is once again descending into the depths of another conflict, what did the first war achieve ?

  2. On the Western Front: The BEF holds Armistice Day services amid the great battlefields of the First World War.

    Massed flocks of American robins and cedar waxwings make a tremendous noise here this week, too.

    How far “out in the fields” did you have to go in order to “notice” the horse and foal dung? Just curious.

    Meanwhile, unsurprisingly, I am reminded of Wheat Field with Crows (1890).
