It's a Dog's Life Country Kennels

My parents own a boarding kennel so I thought it's time to set up a display stand of our Dog Wind Spinners for the first time this 4th of July weekend!  Here are some pictures:

How to water the garden without an outside water faucet!

I've come across this information on how to make your own pop bottle irrigation system for plants and find it to be interesting enough to try out.  I have a veggie garden but do not have an outside water faucet...and there lies my biggest problem. Therefore, my veggie garden relies on Mother Nature for it's watering.  Maybe by making these water/pop bottle irrigation systems and placing them throughout my garden will help!  I'm definitely going to try it and will follow-up on it's results.

Hummingbirds Galore!

This is an amazing video of a couple who dedicate their lives to feeding hummingbirds.  They clean and refill feeders several times a day to keep these hummers happy and returning on a daily basis!  Nearly 4 gallons of homemade nectar (1 part sugar to 4 parts water) A DAY!
