Earth Hour

This event is tomorrow night (Saturday,the 28th) at 8:30 pm. Still time to participate by just turning off your lights for one hour. Sounds like a good idea, saves energy and romantic at the same time! Check it out!

The Empire State Building will also be turning off its lights for one hour. Here's an article on it.


Spring is Here!

Yeay! Spring is officially here! Sorry, NYC! I noticed it was snowing there this morning! It won't be long though! :)

Here's some pics of my "barely" blooms. Now this was from about a week ago, so I need to get back out and take some more photos. The daffodils are already gone!

The little bee (if you can see him) is my favorite! I can remember as a child there were SO many bees in the yard, you could not go out there barefoot! Yes, I got a sting or two! But I saw this lone little bee the other day working very hard going from flower to flower. Honestly, I did not see another one!! Surely there are more SOMEwhere out there! Our grass has not been cut yet, because what would be left for the bees...for now anyway!

And what would spring be without Baseball!! This is at Baum Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas! Everyone is wearing the green caps for St Patricks Day! Go Hogs!

Thanks for visiting! In the process of a blog makover!! More to come soon!!

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!


Wearin' O' The Green!

Whoa!! This is really the Wearin' O' The Green!! I just couldn't go another day with a Christmas Tree in my layout! I don't have a clue when it comes to adding new backgrounds. But I do know how to delete them, and add a standard template! A new fresh springy design is coming soon...when my DD has time to fix it for me. So meanwhile, it's St. Paddy's green!
Hope everyone has a great day! Wear your green, so you won't get pinched!


Eagle Cam...eggs!

Happy Sunday!

I love birdcams! Check out this link to the George Miksch Sutton Avian Research Center's Eagle Cam near Stillwater, Oklahoma. Scroll down a bit to see the video. The eggs are set to hatch around March 15th!!



Spring Yet? YES!!

I think it may be here! It feels like it anyway! Right now, at 1pm, it's 79 degrees! We've been out cleaning up around the yard. I remember now that we haven't done much in the way of exercise lately! Oh my, we both had to come in and take a break!

We have a pair of hawks in the neighborhood (the park is only a couple blocks away) They KNEW it was spring! They were flying back and forth, diving and calling to each other all morning. So fun to see all the birds busily making their nests,too.

Ok, I guess I'd better get back out in the yard. More spring *adventures* to come! :)
Is cleaning the yard an adventure?
