It’s interesting to say that Mahdiabad was our winter village.We went to our main village in Dodangeh 130 kilometers from Mahdiabad during the summer .We returned to this village the next winter or abandoned it and went to other villages.
The nature Mehdi Abad Village in my childhood
Although there is not even one square meter of r pasture in Mehdi Abad now, but this village was surrounded by many square kilometers of pastures in those days.It was considered as national resources
Some parts of this land was salt marsh and covered with Sazil plants .Sazils were a hedgehog like bush .It was one meter tall no animal ate them.
There was a kind of local grass under Sazils called Shoor In many parts of this natural pasture. The shoor plant looked like thornless cactuses. But these miniature cactuses had many thin long capsule shape Leaves.
It was always cloudy and the ground was covered with grass.
The morning dew, washed the feet of men in this pasture.
Rain was falling forever.
Different kinds of wild plants which we called Paylem, Chemaz, Kangel, Zard t t and …. Were abundant everywhere .
There was a hare under each plant.
Wild pomegranate bushes were innumerable.
There were bird nests everywhere.
Everywhere was full of butterflies.
The larvae of Insects were everywhere, but it was not necessary to use any insecticide against them ,because there were so many birds that they ate them all.
Tamarisk trees were also plentiful.
There were many little marshes around the village which were formed by rain or flooding rivers.
There were lots of water lily in the marshes
These marshes were full of fish, frogs, snakes, turtles and other marine animals.
Everywhere was ful of many types of native and migratory birds were. Voice of Geese and other migratory birds were heard everywhere.
Nights were Starry and magnificent.
The sound of frogs never stopped.
The nature of mahdiabad in those days
The grass used the energy of the sun and minirals of soil to grow.
The aphid sucked the nectar of grass.
The ladybug ate the aphids
The frog ate the ladybugs.
The snakes ate the frogs
The duck also ate the frogs
The eagl ate the snake and the ducks.
The earthworms are digging in the hole
Locusts are eating the grass
the ants are gathering food
The millipedes are mashing with their countless feet
This nature was a paradise for me and the other kids to play in it.
