Hummingbirds in N. Texas Now

Ladies and Gentlemen, Fill Your Feeders!

The hummingbirds have arrived to North Texas. Heard the familiar whirring earlier in the week but finally made visual confirmation.

My Black Chinned Hummers have returned.

Hooray!!!

Animaniacs Explain Astronomy

By: GardenGrrl, 4:43 AM GMT on March 24, 2011

We all have heard the sad news that Borders Books is closing it's stores. At 40 to 50% off I went for some serious shopping.

One thing really cool that I bought was the Smithsonian- "Collins Star Finder Pack". It contains a Planisphere which is a circular star chart that you can dial around to help you find what constellations are visable anytime of the year.

It also has an easy to follow instruction book that shows the planet positions for the next five years. That part made me happy this kit was half price. The problem being is it started with 2006 :p

Of course the kit sent me trekking across the internet to learn more and look up terms I didn't know. I found some scholars that explain the universe in a way I can understand.

VICTORY!

By: GardenGrrl, 9:42 AM GMT on March 11, 2011

Finally after repeated e-mails, negotiations and then letters to the real-estate agencies, the evil realtor has been made to send me the Termination of Buyer/Tenant Representation agreement.

However, seeing as I gave her two weeks to act civilized and she didn't, I am going to create a paper trail of registered complaints with appropriate State agencies. That way if she pulls this again with someone else, she will not be able to wiggle out of the consequences.

And, seeing as I'm up during sun light, it is 81 degrees and gorgeous outside. Roxie and I are going to play in the yard. :-D


One of the greatest things about coming from a family that has taken ethnic diversity to the alter many times over is that I can celebrate just about every eastern and western european holiday.

To all my Irish kin, Happy St Patricks Day.


According to our good friend Proserpina and her March Blog, today, March 11th, is Worship Of Tools Day.
Today is a time to give thanks and homage to the tools in your life be they Garden, Weather Monitoring, Construction or Human.
Okay, maybe not the human we think is a tool ;-)

So, go to the best Hardware Store in the area and stand in awe and reverence to the wonderous tools displayed. Perhaps even take some time to clean and organize your tools.

But most of all be glad that someone, somewhere made something that makes your life easier.

Peace, Love and adjustable wrenchs, Gardengrrl
