There are no birds at my feeder either. Yes, we know what is happening, and if some are correct, there is nothing we can do to stop it. I believe we can change global warming, and I do not think enough people will understand. They will find scapegoats, i.e. immigrants and refugees.

If we can't stop global warming is there a way we can live civilly with each other? Laura and Larry did not move to the NE WA forest as survivalists; they just wanted to raise their daughters in a slower paced environment. I moved here because I needed help with daily things that I can no longer do for myself. 

I am profoundly happy!

Holy Cow! Cherry blossoms now. I see that my silver maple tree is budding. Not good. And I've seen dandelions bloom. One more thing: I haven't had any birds at my bird feeder--nary a one. What's going on? Not that I don't already know the answer.

Ruth, this scene is not good news! Even as it is beautiful! I wonder what the trees will do during "normal" blossoming time? 

Daniel, keep me up to date on your season's progress, please. I am keeping track of regular and current events from friends around the globe.

Cherry blossoms Tuesday in DC, folks.

My Hellebores are blooming in Bensalem, just north of Philly. (sorry no pics)

Spud had internet problems - I hope that's all and he'll be back soon.

Thanks for the warning, Daniel. I figure winter rains and snow will dilute it sufficiently by planting time. My dog "helps" out, too!

Joan, I just love your take on life. It's inspirational.

I miss Spud's input. Wonder where he's been?

Happy solstice to all my garden group members. Be well.

Winter Wonderland arrived in time for our Winter Solstice Celebrations. Our W.S. fires will be on Dec 26, this year when the whole L&L family can come. 

The winter nights fill most of our days; we don't see the sun at all because it makes its journey from horizon to horizon deep through the thick forest.  

Mixed greens and kale continue to fill our salad bowls several times a week, to our delight. I make lemon and olive oil dressings using a variety of herbs and spices I dried  last autumn from my garden in Spokane. 

Because we continue to have a lot of tasks to do in the forest I see outside my bedroom window I will not be planting the variety of conifers I want to put around the perimeter of the clearing; I am searching for and reading up on the species that grow naturally on this property. The huge cedar stump that was bulldozed off the place where the house sits lies like a sleeping monster reminding me of the once ancient forest that covered this ground. We will tidy up the brush that now obscures it. We will put the raised beds on the meadow within my view from the bedroom and plant clover as ground cover.

It is a wondrous time of year with plenty of time contemplate on the past year and meditate about the coming year. Good health, joy, and peace settle down over our little community deep in the woods of NE WA state. 

May your days be filled to overflowing in the feelings, thoughts and actions you desire that come your way!

I've been following Daniel's suggestion and saving my urine to add to the garden. Amazingly, I produce more than I thought--and I'm not a big liquid consumer. I don't dilute it, just toss the bucket's worth in the garden. I'm eager to see the results next Spring. I'm glad I live alone!

It makes one wonder if amanita evolved to be so colorful and attractive to be eaten. Then what? 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 15, 2015 at 7:06am

If it is amanita, it's psychedelic. You'd be seeing colors a while after ingesting it. AKA the food of the gods.
