MMI- The fear in all of us

"When I first met you I was afraid to like you,
now that I like you I'm afraid to love you,
now that I love you I'm afraid to lose you.”

Unknown

Is this true of all of us?

WW - Wild Birds

Some of the birds there are gorgous, many variety and species.

In one place, they allow you to feed them and they will land on your hand, shoulder, and where they chose. But you have to be careful of getting hit with their pooh.

MY - Blue Berries



I'm hoping that by the end of the summer I might get a few blue berries off this plant.


The instruction said to buy two plants so that they could cross pollinate, but alas, I didn't so I'll have to let you know if I messed up or not.


Love having fruit bushes in my yard.


Have a great day,

WW - Our Long Neck Friends



As you can see, the park has to protect the tree so the animals won't peal off all the bark and kill the tree.


The park rangers also distribute branches and hang them high in the air so that the giraffes have to reach for them. It's amazing the things the park does to make the animals feel like they are in their natural surroundings.

So many of us are busy. A few minutes or an hour can be a gift that can help our lover relax.

An in some ways it's an easy gift to give.

Take the kids to the park and let your spouse have a time alone.

Do some of his or her chores like cut the grass, wash the dishes, put in a load of laundry.

These little things can show your lover how much you care -- try one today.

My Yard - Growing Vegetables



I don't have a large yard. So to take advantage of the space I have, I decided to use pots to help me have the garden I want.


I have a nice tomato plant with spinach around the base.


Should have plenty of salad for the hot days of summer.

Wild Animals need lots of room to roam. One of the nice things about the San Diego Animal Park is that they provide a home to a wild variety of animals. Some are endanger, and because of the park's great work, their numbers are growing.
