Spring has Sprung
Well, the Black Bear is awake now in our area, how do I know that you ask. He destroyed my bird and suet feeder. Pulled them off the Shepherds Hook which by the way he bent almost to the ground. Then tore the lid off the suet feeder and left it is pieces. Next, on to the bird feeder, smashed the plastic tube and managed to get it in pieces also.
It has been a few years since I had trouble with the bear, he is a large male around 200 pounds and most of the time I can just scare him off by banging on something loudly. But he managed to sneak in the yard late at night this time.
On my once a week grocery shopping event, I see things still have not calmed down in my area. We are still in the shelter in place until April 6th and then it might be extended depending on the virus numbers. Store still has the hoarding issue, no sugar, flour, paper products, rice, dried beans and now people are buying most of the canned goods. Even all the eggs were gone. I have gotten very creative on making dinners now.

I had many people ask about caring for Orchids. I get all my information on watering, re-potting and problems with Orchids by watching Miss Orchid Girl on You Tube. She has over 400 Orchids, from the easy to grow to the exotics.
I bought all my re-potting supplies from a company called rePotme Orchid Supplies. They have really fast shipping and most months have some kind of discount of their products.
