You may have had a dream in which a ringing telephone urged you to pick up the receiver.
If this was the case, who was calling and what did they have to say to you? In both dreams and waking life, telephones are symbols of communication telling you that someone wants to communicate something to you, so perhaps your unconscious is trying to tell you something.
If you picked up the telephone and heard nothing but abuse, this signals guilt about some issue in your waking life.
If the phone rang in your dreams and you picked it up but no one was there, could your dreaming mind have been urging you to remember something or someone, as in ’ringing a bell’? Hearing a doorbell in your dream indicates something new coming into your life; this can be negative or positive, depending on the dream. It could also suggest the desire to hear from someone or make contact with them.
The ringing of an alarm clock in a dream indicates the need to get up and do something; it may also be a reminder of something or someone you have neglected. The ringing of a school bell, or the timer on a cooker, kettle or any kitchen appliance in a dream may also be prompting you to move forward with an idea or gain a new experience in the world. In real life, loud alarms—such as sirens, or fire, burglar, smoke or car alarms—warn us of impending threat and danger, and they do the same in dreamland. Perhaps your unconscious has noticed that your front door is not properly closed or that your car is vulnerable to theft. Alternatively, your unconscious may have been warning you about an overheated situation in your waking life, such as loss of control, invasion of privacy or an impending crisis.
Other sounds that are clear symbols of warning in your dreams include whistles blown by teachers, police officers or referees, the growling of angry dogs or the horns on cars, ships or trains. Such sounds may also indicate that you are defying authority figures in some way; there may have been an allusion to whistleblowing, drawing your attention to a transgression of some kind, either your own or someone you know? Alternatively, the growling of a dog could have suggested that you or someone you know are about to unleash their anger on the world in some way. Air-raid sirens are associated with the fear and pain of World War II and in dreams may express fear of the unknown or longing for old comradeship.... The Element Encyclopedia

Cutting hair or a hand or some other part of the body may symbolize (preparation for, or need for) passing from one phase or manner of life to another, from one set of values and goals to another. (Compare traditional initiation rites and rites of passage.

NB The second phase is ahvays fuller than the first.

Dreams of cutting and pasting symbolize that you are editing, organizing and rearranging your thoughts and maybe even your life. You are in the process of discerning who and what to keep and what and who to eliminate.... Strangest Dream Explanations
A cut is evidence of wounding; protection that is instinctive.
The skin is the largest organ of the human body, comprising three layers. Its primary function is to separate the outside and inside of the body, offering a mildly protective shell for the tissue beneath it. Cuts in the skin hinder the effectiveness of that protection, and the body quickly responds to any injury it may sustain.
A cut leaves a mark that is the evidence of the wound. Whether the wound occurs in the dream or appears to have already happened in the past indicates where you are in the process of responding to some hurtful moment in life.
As food is associated with emotion, a dream of eating with cutlery that is old, rusty or inadequate or wrongly used (for example, trying to eat soup with a fork) may suggest you are attempting to satisfy your emotions in an inappropriate way. If, in your dream, the spoons, knives and forks are shiny and glittering, this could indicate a contented home life. Forks are often associated with social interaction and they may indicate a future event you are looking forward to. They may also suggest trying to get to the root of problems. A rusty or twisted knife in a dream can indicate relationship or family problems.
If both a knife and a fork appear in your dream, they may represent the masculine and feminine elements of your personality, and how you express and balance the two in waking life.
If a spoon appeared in your dream and you saw a distorted picture of yourself reflected in it, this suggests a distorted view of yourself.
If you were eating or drinking anything from the spoon in your dreams, this may relate to someone, or something, in waking life that you want to protect.
If the spoon contains medicine, there may be an unpleasant lesson for you to learn, or swallow, in waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

The phenomenon of “cutting” is a ritualized addiction where a person deliberately cuts himself or herself as a stress-relief mechanism. People who cut will describe a satisfaction in having an interior experience of emotional pain expressed physically on the body. Being cut in a dream, whether self-inflicted or otherwise, is a similar action by the unconscious mind to express inner pain in an outward manner.

This dream indicates a need to sacrifice a way of being or thinking that no longer serves you. Such a sacrifice is a symbolic movement in the process of change and the evolution of your character. Something needs to die in order for something else to be reborn. In the case of an execution, the impulse to do this is coming out of some perceived wrong, shame, or defect of character.
A particular way of being in the world as represented by the character being executed is no longer necessary.
If it is you who is being executed, then it is your whole sense of identity that is being confronted with drastic change.
If you are doing the executing, then your ego mind is getting ready for some dynamic housecleaning.
If neither of these scenarios is the case, consider what you know about the person being executed. You will find what is currently up for transformation in the character aspect that the individual embodies.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

A farm represents the production of food to provide nurturance through abundance on a large scale. Evoking images of serenity and simplicity, farms harken back to a connection to the land that is all but forgotten in our current culture and history. Working on a farm points to a call to action to dig deeper and take responsibility for getting your needs met. Owning a farm connects to how responsible you are to your self-nurturing and perhaps to the dependence of others upon you for such needs.
If you can eat only what you plant and tend, then farms connect to taking (or not taking) responsibility for your personal needs and how you get them addressed.
A specific farm crop could add some texture to your meaning.
A dairy farm might connect to emotional matters, maternal concerns, and thoughts around children.

As Jiminy Cricket suggests, insects can also represent your conscience, guilt and feelings you might want to forget; perhaps insects represent these areas because they live their lives in our house and garden largely unseen, although we sometimes sense their presence. In this sense, a swarm might represent being overwhelmed with guilt.

In dreams, wild flowers represent freedom, freshness and natural beauty, symbolizing a disregard for the highly organized beauty of artificial flower beds or plastic flowers.
If many flowers are growing in your dream, this indicates feelings of wellbeing and optimism. The opposite will be the case if the flowers are dying or wilting. Do nature’s simple charms have great meaning for you, with your dream of wild flowers indicating the need for a simpler life? Or do you feel you are about to flower and fulfill your potential? Dreamers picking wild flowers may be turning away from their partner.
Cut flowers are unable to give pleasure in their natural setting and therefore may suggest artificiality and appearance over substance. Because flowers are a symbol of sexuality, fake or artificial flowers in a dream may suggest that those whom you think of as friends are actually showing you a false face or persona. On the other hand, flowers in a vase suggest a showcasing of your inner beauty or something that facilitates your personal development.
If you were arranging flowers in a vase or in a floral arrangement, try to remember if you did so carelessly or with great care. The positioning of flowers in dream floral arrangements can indicate how we unconsciously relate to others.
If your arrangement was artless or careless, you have a casual approach to relationships with others that may leave others feeling unimportant to you.
If you took extreme care with the arrangement, this can either indicate a positive, caring approach to relationships with others or controlling and manipulative tendencies. And if dried flowers appeared in your dream, this suggests that past relationships may be more important to you than the people with whom you are currently interacting in waking life....
