Baby Black Bear and New KidsProject- AND MARCH BLOOM DAY!!!

Just about a week ago the DNR came to our school to show us something a dog drug in... Latterly a dog brought this to someones house and they called the DNR to have them come and get it... I couldn't imagine my dog bringing home a Black Bear!!!

She is only about 6 weeks old and her eyes weren't even open yet. They are bottle feeding her and say she is doing fine. She will be released back into the wild when they find another mother for her. She was so cute and made the cutest little noise, almost like a cats purr. She didn't seem to mind all the kids looking at her she slept most of the time...



I also saw my first Robbin last week... Now they are everywhere... It is so nice to wake up hearing birds again, our little sparrows are building on the porch already...




She's looking right at me as to say "What are you doing???" It is so good to see them back!

I'm getting my little planters ready for the kids at school to start. They are so easy...

You just cut a 2 liter bottle in half take a piece of fabric (I used a piece of felt) about 8 inches long and 3 inches wide. Tie a knot in one end. Stuff the long end down in the pop bottle neck letting it hang out.





Fill with potting mix and plant your seeds... fill the bottom with water and set your top section in making sure the fabric is in the water. Cover the top with Saran Wrap and let them grow. ( I put a little water in the top just after I plant the seeds)It waters it's self. Just make sure you add a little water to the bottom when it runs out... Pop them in a nice sunny window...
The kids will love watching them grow...
Even you big kids will love this project, so next time you go to throw away that pop bottle think twice and plant a few seeds!!!!


Almost forgot about March Bloom Day.... They are just ready to Burst!!!

LOOK SPRING REALLY IS COMING...

HAVE A GOOD ONE,

LYNN

The black bear was something. Don't see that everyday.

The soda bottle idea is perfect for the kids. We use to have a teacher who always had us start seeds and put them in the school room windows to watch them grow.It was a fun project.
