Nature's Inspiration Movie

http://www.flickspire.com/m/HealthierL433/NaturesInspiration -- Nature's Inspiration Movie: The photographs in this short video are from award-winning photographer, Ken Jenkins, and they are breathtaking. However, this video is much more than beautiful photographs! Peggy Anderson has compiled beautiful quotations from the likes of Emerson, Thoreau, and many others that truly capture the beauty of nature and solitude. Absolute must watch for nature lovers.

Onion and Garlic Bed



This is our bed with Onion and Garlic plants. I have put lots of leaves mulch and other organic matter because apparently garlic and onion likes rich soil. Onion and Garlic are remarkable plants. They will survive and their frail looking leaves will stand erect even under the most harshest snow. And, they pop up wherever you drop the garlic clove and the onion bulb. And, they also produce beautiful, showy flowers. They are so easy to grow and so tenacious that it is amazing people don't grow this; rather, garlic is imported to the USA all the way from China!!!!! At least we all can drop some garlic clove here and there in our garden and lawn and help boost the US economy and the US farmers, instead of spending money, polluting the environment to import "in-organic" garlic all the way from China!
