Going Green

Hulkessing it

The dandelions are not letting the grass grow under their feet!

Google Lense tells me this is a Fritillaria imperialis: the emperor does wear a crown.

Blowing into the Wind

Seedlings in the spring lawn

Carnage on a Saturday

The Killing Fields

Nature's voices

We had strong winds over the weekend causing havoc, and even death. Several old trees toppled over, the power and the internet went down. These winds have become more common in the last three years or so. The winds of change?

Spring is sprung, the grass has rizz, I wonder where the birdies is… At the bird feeder! The squirrels are getting smarter by the day, however.

Weekend entertainment: Ladies out Laughing, with Jessica Holmes (she can sing too!) and Heidi Brander.

I am looking at EverWeb‘s website building tools for fun and enlightenment. Looking good.
Here’s what changing a website feels like for a kinaesthetic learner:

Reading: That’s What She Said – Joanne Lipman (yes!). Much to relate to.

Creepers and Coffees

A creeper grows on a rainforest tree
Creeper on bark. Just like spring in Canada.

As I reminisced about the rain forest clime, I added a Ko-fi button: now we can share one if you go down that cute little alley on the home page in the sidebar which you get to by clicking on the three little lines in the header. Which made me look up what Canadians pay for coffee, since $3 is what’s on the button. According to “Which coffee gives the biggest bang for the buck”, it seems Starbucks bucks Timmies in terms of bucks-for-caffeine content, which is interesting, though the article is from 2010. Also, Canadians like their water coffee-flavored: more Canadians drank coffee than just plain water, according to The Coffee Association of Canada. The path to SB’s is covered in ice rain today though – just a delightful part of a Canadian spring!

And the bird feeder rests in pieces.
