Hi there and thanks for stopping by my page.

I have been writing about 7 years now, with the exception of about a 6 month hiatus due to a discontinuance of my former blog software. Unfortunately, as those of you who also write know, when one blog software expires or you simply wish to transition, it is a much more complicated process than expected. I wish my original posts were in chrono order, but they no longer are. Thus, you might find one month I’m married and the next I speak of my boyfriend (fyi - they are one and the same!)

About me in particular: I am in my 5th decade of life, born and raised in the North Texas area. My daily work is in the business world, but my heart is always attuned to nature.  As a child I loved growing things, especially from seed. I experimented in our front and back yards often. I also always had an abundance of pets (to my parent’s chagrin, I’m afraid!)  As a child, I had multiple cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, goldfish and even frogs, turtles and chameleons. While I never owned a pet bird, there was always a bird feeder or two around my house. In addition, I used to kidnap my little brother and go for hikes and “fossil walks” when I was a teen and he was only about 6 – 8 yrs old (my closer-in-age sisters weren’t all that excited about rocks.) To this day, my brother takes his son (my nephew) on fossil hunts. I’m kind of proud of that!

Currently I have a dog and a cat. I also have two bird feeders around the house and a nesting dove in one of my flower baskets!  Speaking of flower baskets, we have an abundance of ornamentals in and surrounding the house. I still love experimenting with seeds and seedlings. My latest experiment is growing a Venus Fly Trap in my sunroom so as to hopefully capture a few of those pesky flies that get into my pets’ food. While I am devoid of an in-ground vegetable garden at the moment, I have two raised beds for herbs and small veggies. I also have a lime tree that is doing excellent!

The reason for this blog? I am fascinated by nature and enjoy researching the hows and whys. I want to share my existing knowledge (through schooling, but mostly through my experiences) and also share as I learn new things – even those things that unfortunately and sometimes humorously, are learned the hard way.  Best way to remember, you know?

Hopefully you will find a topic or two within my pages that will fascinate you, too!

My blog is a "when I have time and resources" hobby, however knowing I have a few fans keeps me at it.  Thanks for reading . . .
