Dogs

I know that many, if not most of my posts are about the world outside my home – the incredible wild creatures that live in our farm-gone-wild and remind me how important it is to embrace nature as often as possible. But, inside my… Continue Reading “Dogs”

Here Comes The Sun!

Over the past week we had unseasonably high temperatures – tipping over the 50 degrees F mark. Then, temps began to fall and rain arrived that turned to ice. The temps plummeted further and we experienced over a day of constant snowfall, accompanied by… Continue Reading “Here Comes The Sun!”

Bloganuary: What is a life lesson you feel everyone can benefit from learning?

It’s interesting to have this subject pop into my Inbox today because I had a conversation with my husband the other night that encompasses this Bloganuary topic, quite well.

A plethora of Pollinators

Get a load of all the insects taking advantage of the nectar that this single Milkweed blossom is offering up. I suppose it’s common knowledge that flowers provide nectar in order to attract pollinators to arrive, imbibe, and drive to another bloom. There, the… Continue Reading “A plethora of Pollinators”

Independence Day
