All right—everyone that grows plants. Have any good experiences or bad?
I’ll start off—I gave my outside plants some Miracle Grow and they died. I had some pretty new guinea impatiens in two pots. They were doing well–but I thought could use some vitamins. Not—r.i.p.
The funniest flop–in plants is when I bought a cute Donkey Tails. It looks like little balls strung together, It was reduced at the local supermarket (red flag-right?). So I brought it home—put it in the corner of my bedroom.
It looked so nice and green. I watered it–and a few days later—noticed some of the balls on the floor.
So I went over to it and touched it—and almost all the balls of the plant start rolling off onto the floor. There was nothing left to the Donkey Tail Plant. It lasted two or three days.
I am glad when things grow. It does seem the plants have plans of their own.
Some time ago I noticed a really strange bug. It looked so much like a part of
So I ran inside to get the video camera.
The following is the result that I posted on my You Tube Channel.
This is the Walking Stick’s debut….
I love animals–That’s just the way I am. It is something you are born with. So–I don’t really like hunting.
Not wanting to get into a dispute with the people that do. It could be a regional thing. If you are doing it–I don’t want to hear about it, nor do I want to eat or hear about your venison burger or meat.
A dear friend a few days ago–sent me photos of a venison meal he was making and all I could do is say— honestly I felt like puking.
I like to observe the beauty of animals (ALIVE) –take photos of them–make videos–draw pictures—paint them–make sculpture. Yes—of Live Ones.
So with that said—No to your outdoor nature meals—yes I know the early pioneers ate it—but it’s not for me.
Every day when I go outside, it is amazing all the things nature shows us. Whether it is the beautiful flowers, trees, birds or animals. There is always a new or different sight. The many colors, patterns are really something to watch.
I like when in the spring the new mothers bring out their babies. The mama birds have a hard time. Their babies are the same size as them. It is funny when you see a mama chickadee with three babies. These babies chase after her, flapping their wings and chatter. “Feed me—feed me.” Poor mama.
Nature can be beautiful, but cruel. I saw a poor dead bird yesterday. It was a nuthatch. It is sad, but maybe the poor thing was hurt.
It is the same way with humans. We see good things and bad. Lately I have been unfortunate to see too much of the bad. I know I will be seeing more of the good.
