Garden theme here at Irisheyes today.
Still knitting my wrap, so no new pictures of knitting-
On our way to Minnesota we tuned into a gardening radio program. They were touting the benefits of hay bale gardening.
I think we are going to give it a try.
We are in the planning stages as the weather is quite cold and it is too early to plant. Food for thought…and all that.
I like the idea of the seedlings and early plantings being raised on the bales. Too many rabbits have stolen my seedlings in the past.
Have you even gardened this way?
My sister Michelle, recommended this book and gave it to me.
I read it in 3 days.
I couldn't put it down.
Animals fascinate me, as you know.
The Beast in the Garden is a beautifully written account of Cougar sightings and encounters in the Colorado area recently.
It is thought provoking.
It is suspenseful.
I cannot recommend it enough.
If you don't read it anytime soon,
let me tell you a few things.
If you live where Cougars have EVER been sighted, do not run in the woods alone. Do not cycle in the woods alone.
Watch your children closely on hikes.
If you come face to face with a Cougar in all its beauty and majesty, holler, look large, yell, throw rocks and do not turn and run.
Fight with all your might…..
There, how's that for a blog post?
