Spring water bubbles out of the ground in two places, just a few feet away from each other. It is interesting to contemplate the spot that water chooses to emerge from the earth and its effects over time.
In another time, this lovely hollowed out semi-circle at the base of a few trees would have made an almost perfect spot for a spring house… complete with stone troughs… a place for crocks of fresh milk. While maintaining a constant temperature, this spring’s running water would have allowed for the storage of dairy products, fresh meat, fruits and vegetables before emerging, once again, further down the hill where it might have provided a nice trough for the farm animals to quench their thirst.
During spring time it just seems to be even easier to witness Mother Earth’s magic and contemplate another… perhaps simpler… time.
