Not the best to take pictures through a screened window, but I couldn't help it. I wanted to capture them in images so that I could share the neat things I see here. The Resident Great Blue Heron. I have known him for about 3 years now. He is not much afraid of me anymore … Continue reading Wildlife Watching from My Bedroom Window
The elk have never stuck around as long in my backyard as they have this winter. I think this has to do with the new neighbors. The old ones have moved, new ones have taken their place as caretakers of the land. I haven't gotten to know them well yet, but I have shared a … Continue reading The elk.
Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com I had planned to get some early stuff planted yesterday. You know, things like hot peppers, red geraniums and celery. Things that need a while to get going. But I ended up cleaning up dead plants and rescuing others. You see it's very hard for me to get up and … Continue reading No seeds started.
So, I went back to the surgeon and had the stitches removed from my surgery and despite the lack of pain now and the good healing, he still wants me to stay off the foot for a bit longer. It is healing as expected but I had hoped he would have given me the green … Continue reading Seeds
But don't break out the calamine lotion. It's not that kind of itching. This is the kind of itching that involves getting antsy for spring.

I miss my goats, my poultry, my garden. I know they are being taken care of (not … Continue reading When the blackbirds sing

It reminds me of prairie in the late summer with masses of goldenrod and wild sunflowers and that late summer tone that leaves, and grasses take on. I … Continue reading Red Flowers
I have no choice this year to get started on the right foot. That is mainly because I am not allowed to walk at all on the left. HA! Perhaps this is rather symbolic. And I am ok with this. If there was any a good time to be forced to rest and relax, right … Continue reading Starting 2022 on the RIGHT foot.
I've had my foot surgery, and all has gone well with it so far. I am only allowed to rest and recover for a while. So, I am resting and reading seed catalogs and dreaming about what will happen once the snow outside melts and I enjoy the look of winter from inside my window … Continue reading Home and Healing
