A black bear--a smaller specimen than the bear that prowled around our place three weeks ago, judging by the footprints--tromped through the garden last night. Just missed my baby broccolis.

Spud, I hope your new tree thrives. Keep us informed.
About 3 years ago, I planted a row of nectarine seeds just for the fun of it. After giving up on them and tilling the row, many seeds have sprouted this year! I plan on eventually transplanting them to my kid's farm.

Received my Pomegranate tree yesterday and planted it today.

Joan, as always, it's uplifting to read your "blog". Your positive outlook is inspirational. It is for certain your "many apples" didn't fall far from the tree (you)!  And at least they'll think twice before succumbing to the evil web of faith and religion, knowing you're the rock of atheism.  Continue the message.

Oh! what a beautiful morning. We had rain yesterday and the forest looks clean and refreshed. Because it was clear cut years ago, a very thick growth developed. It badly needs thinning and Laura's family works hard at getting it thinned. Larry's son, Travis, grew up learning how to cut timber. He does a skilled job at picking which trees to cut and chooses a wide variety to maintain and nourish the varieties. 

My very special great-grandson, 16 years old, Jacob, was mowing yesterday and hit a major water pipe that was improperly place by former owners. He shut off the main source of water, started digging to find the break, and he replaced it.  I can't imagine a city kid being so wise and capable of mending plumbing. 

So many of my great-grandchildren have biblical names. Ethan, Noah, Jacob, ...  well, that is not as many as I thought. Michelle's partner has a Methodist background and Laurie's partner is a Jehovah's Witness. Both of the men have remarked about my writings on Facebook. Yay! They read some of my heresy! I don't know if they still do. The kids have been asking me some interesting questions. They all work with me in the garden and we visit as we labor. I feel as though I have died and gone to heaven. I left behind many gardens during my 20 years as a military dependent. I also left

The kids have been asking me some interesting questions. They all work with me in the garden and we visit as we labor. I feel as though I have died and gone to heaven. I left behind many gardens during my 20 years as a military dependent, moving every two or three years. I also left my garden of 41 years that stands as a great memorial to design and variety. This is my last hurrah to life and living things. It is nice to have a purpose in life. I feel loved and valued by my family. 

As my physical body wears out, my mind continues to imagine, explore, experiment, dream, nurture, search, research, visualize and hope for a healthy Earth and its living things.

Barbara, my rain-barrels are overflowing also. 

Comment by Barbara Livingston on May 17, 2015 at 10:09am

Spud, I too saw a bumblebee first.  Raining hard again today and projected all week ... my rainbarrels are long ago filled and now simply overflowing.

The rain has finally come to Pocatello.  One inch in the last week, most of it in the last 24 hours.  

Three days ago, I saw the first bee in my garden.  A bumblebee, my favorite kind.  It didn't seem interested in the chive flowers.  Just kept looking in the raspberries for 10 minutes before the poor thing gave-up.  The raspberries are not quite blooming yet.

One mole down, two to go! I caught one in the act--dug him up and whacked him with my shovel. However, the really bad guy is going through my garden where it's easy digging. So far, not much damage. It'll take patience to find him.
