There’s a ditch at the end of my backyard. On the other side is a wetlands preserve, so there are various and divers willow bushes and trees along this ditch.
This wetland flora give me a glimpse of something wild every day. Their state is an instant weather gauge, too.
Below is a short clip of the ditch trees in motion as a storm front approaches. I wish I knew how to use video to convey the subtle sights and sounds of the everyday. When the wind gusts in this clip, it sounds a bit like a boom box speaker that been blown out by loud hair band music at some point in the distant past.
