Our little red headed bird with a pretty yellow chest was here a little bit ago. And the hummingbirds are back. I hope the neighbor has really taken up feeding those. So I can continue to focus on the birds. Now is about establishing natural plants in my garden. And now I’m also inspired. I […]
Man the older I get. I’ve wasted two and a half hours of my morning looking for earphones. Really, is that the best use of my time? I wander all over never quite organized. Having a greenhouse that keeps all of my seed stuff in one place would be awesome. Right now my incubators are […]
I would think a garden by it’s nature is a story. It’s a thought you can touch. Perhaps it’s what’s missing. That is what I said probably a week ago. After a few days of letting this kind of thing sink in, I do have a story. It’s mine. I was just thinking about how […]

Having fresh water for birds is just as important. A hanging bath has drawn more than all my lovely traditional baths. […]
Do you ever think man don’t look back? I do. All the time. And about most everything! Yet eventually you realize letting the cobwebs obscure the past, makes you forgot whats important. It blurs the tapestry woven with the fine threads of every day life. While cleaning out the cobwebs of this site, I came […]
