There was a lot of clamor and noise coming from the back this morning. The sound of motors, of equipment moving along, getting into position. Were my neighbors embarking on a project? Was the city trimming trees or doing roadwork? I open the backdoor, looking to see what was going on. Nothing in the neighbor’s yard, nothing in the street. Puzzled, I glance around. The cat comes out, sliding by to go down the steps. I reach to grab him, when I finally see what caused the racket. Now sitting quietly on the steps, the tractors had returned from the fair. They don’t like to be idle and they’ll start rumbling soon if they don’t find work. They aren’t, however, much use moving dirt. Their area of expertise is the decorative arts and they’re ready to go to work when you are!
A heathered yellow background shows off the detail on the green truck, who specializes in farm decor and summer and spring projects.
Red likes to work in Christmas projects, but feels a red tractor ribbon is equally at home in summer.
Green hastens to point out that green tractors and Christmas are a natural fit and that green is the color of new leaves in spring.
and they brought back a new friend, the red truck. Equally ready to work in any season!
Another glance and I saw their Pop, a grand green and yellow tractor, off to the side, happy to welcome them back.
