Last year, my husband decided he wanted to expand his garden. To increase the area receiving direct sunshine, he hired someone to cut down four trees beside our house. This is what all four of them looked like last year. They’re all still out there, taller than I am! But they don’t all look like this anymore. One of them has kept right on growing–maybe not up, but out! I decided to be adventurous and climb on top of it, and show you just how green it is. Continue reading Keep Growing!
I grew up in a family, both immediate and extended, that loves to sing. We had it all covered–soprano, alto, tenor and bass–and the harmony to bring it all together!

But you are not meant to be a lone ranger. Continue reading One Alone, or One of Many?
Rainy days…good, bad, or indifferent? Good for vegetable gardens, flowers, ducks and frogs. If you’re a preschool teacher, they can be the epitome of evilness itself! Those darlings need to get outside and expend as much energy as possible! Continue reading Go Away, or Come Again?
