I know, I know…......John will probably be shocked that I did not prepare the brug for winter ages ago. But my excuse is this…...... I only hope now that I have brought it into my spare b-room (the coolest room) that it will no...
I was thrilled to see these strange, exotic birds visiting my feeders. This is the first time at my feeders and the first time I had seen these birders anywhere. I hope you enjoy seeing these pictures…....maybe they’ll visit you to...
It certainly has been a challenging year for growing almost anything. While I do not usually water either my lawn or the perennials in my garden, this year I did break down and water the flowers a couple times. It was either that or see them col...
