Our scripture for this year is Rev. 21:5 – Behold, I make all things new. That reminds me of rechargeable batteries. Every time your battery runs down you just pop it into the charger, let it go for a while, and ZAM! A new battery! I think it is one way to keep heavy metals out of landfills and water. It is also “easy peezy” and saves money. Seems like a great deal on all counts. I’m gonna do this!

Rev. 21:5 – Behold, I make all things new. The past few weeks, it seems like we see new growth everywhere. Spring is here! Ya know the new growth I love to see? Berries! Yep, the strawberries have been going strong, and the blueberries will be close behind. And the very best way to enjoy their freshness is to pick them yourself. What a great outing for the family to enjoy together. I think we should all make “pick your own” a habit. Come to think of it, once you try it, you’ll automatically be back for more.

🎶 The circle of life 🎶 ….I love that song! It

reminds me of all the circles in nature. My favorite is how plants and animals die and decay and eventually turn into wonderful, rich soil that grows more plants and animals. Round and round, just like a circle. Life…growth…death… decay…new life! Let’s all think of ways we can be a part of that amazing process!

Remember the big Texas freeze we had last year? Wow! That was a KILLER! Well, not completely. You see, most of the native plants survived. In fact, my very favorite Virburnum bush bounced back, and is still there for me. It reminds me to watch for the ways in which the earth renews. I celebrate that! So my New Year’s Resolution is to remember Rev. 21:5 – Behold, I make all things new.

Fa la la! Wanna know some great eco- friendly ways to wrap gifts? Here we go! Reuse old shopping bags, newspapers, fabric scraps, scarves, tea towels, maps, tote bags, or even NOTHING (just tie on an evergreen or holly sprig). And when you are done opening gifts remember this handy tip for recycling: please NO metallic, glittered or waxy paper. And save those bows!

Are you a picky eater? I am! And I am not alone, either. You see, many of the critters around us thrive on locally native plants and trees. In fact, some of them cannot live at all without their “native diet.” That is one of the many reasons that we should all plant more natives. Doing so will provide plentiful food for the wildlife around us. And healthy wildlife – like ME! – is critical to maintaining a healthy planet.

We sure had a cold one this winter – I almost froze! Your gardens may have suffered too. Well, if you purchase new plants to replace your poor lost ones, don’t throw away the plastic pots! Instead, take them to Nature’s Way Resources (101 Sherbrook Cir. 77385). They will reuse them to stock their nursery (which, by the way, is chock full of hearty native plants). Good idea all around!

What is an aquifer? Well, when it rains, water seeps into the ground and collects in porous rock deep under the surface. That is an aquifer. We can get that water by drilling a well to pump it to the surface. It is like a water bank! When we can’t get enough water from our rainfall, rivers and lakes, we go to the aquifer. But we don’t want to take too much water, because it takes a VERY LONG TIME for the aquifer to refill. So we sure do want to save our aquifers!

Did you know that when dirt is full of great organic stuff and lots of happy microorganisms, it is called soil? Soil is critical to our health and well-being! Without it, we don’t have healthy plants, or trees or worms or animals or even people! Let’s learn about ways to improve the health of our soil. Our lives depend upon it. My Mom gets really made at me if I say a dirty word. But maybe HEALTHY dirt is NOT a dirty word!

You know the rules for recycling (what to recycle and what NOT to recycle). Many recycle bins have a list on the lid. What about when you just don’t know if an item should go in the recycle bin? If you don’t know, please put it in the trash. Contaminating the recycling stream can cause huge problems. And you don’t want to be problem causer. So “when in doubt, throw it out.” Thank you.
