Ready for Spring!


I found these terra cotta pots when we were cleaning out the greenhouse the other day.  They looked really plain and just boring!  I found some cans of spray paint and fixed them!
A fast and easy project to get ready for Spring!
These were the paint colors I had.
Now for the fun part!  Waiting on the work table for further color.
You have to agree these are way more fun than that first photograph.  So, go find/get some pots and have some fun getting them ready for flowers, or herbs, or anything else you want to plant.  Go now!

"Easter Bear" Update .....

These are the foot prints the Easter Bear left the other night.  Apparently he did return last night although we did not hear him.  He managed to drag off up into the woods, about 100 feet from the house, the very large vinyl trash can with lid,  in which we had a 40 pound bag of corn we use to feed the deer.  He dropped corn along the way and left the can, but managed to take off with the bag containing  most of the corn.   I am now tired of the Easter Bear .......

The Easter Bear Came ! . . . .

   .....'cause that's how we roll in Northwestern Pennsylvania. 
 I wish I had a  photograph of this fabulous beast but it was almost midnight last night and quite dark on the porch.  I was not going to go outside and introduce myself so you will have to use your imagination.
He (she?) was very, very big, and black, and  had what looked like a soft and silky coat.  When he stood beside the double wide french doors ( 6 feet wide) leading onto the porch, he easily reached from one side to the other.
He made a total mess of the two bird feeding trays as he ate most of the sunflower seeds foolishly left by our birds.  Happily it is close enough to Spring that we can repair, and put away these feeders, as the Easter Bear will most certinly be back if we don't.  He wandered around on the porch, looking in all 3 of the french doors and sniffing the handles.  I wonder if he could break through those glass panes if motivated enough?  I was anxious I admit! 

I don't know a lot about bears, but I can guess that the hibernation period is over and these beautiful beasts are hungry!
