A Birds-Eye View into February

I am feeling the love of Winter. February is the month of love anyway, so why not try just to accept winter and love it? Even though it is mostly cold and gray out, I still find beauty in the midst of winter.  Snow?  Yes, it can be disturbing to your daily work drive, and...

Welcome, September!

I recently discovered something new and very interesting.  Hummingbirds.  Many of my friends have these bird feeders in their yards and gardens and I hear how they get such enjoyment from watching these beautiful birds.  So, when my husband recently went to the Marshall County Co-op to ask what possibly he could replace my beautiful...
