Tree climbing thrill

Climbing trees is one of my most favorite things to do. Today was another beautiful day, and I spent part of it up in the top of my favorite cedar tree on our property. There is me, having fun, although I got so many scratches up my arms, you have no idea... Oh well, just part of the thrill!
Whew, I don't have a fear of heights, but this was quite high. About seventy feet I would estimate.
I found a nest in the top of the tree! Nothing in it, however.

I was going to take a picture of a certain inscription on the tree(Anna), but then I decided against it. Anyway, I hope tomorrow is as nice as today! Happy Easter everyone!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about the herbs, Hannah. Herbs do not need a very fretile ground, just loose soil with compost and maybe some sand. Ther are herbs which will likely do better than others in your regionand I would recommend starting with easy ones and then expanding. I just love my herbs. The scents are so relaxing.
I am checking out your blog and going to recommend it to others who also have chickens. Have a blessed Easter day!

Hi Hannah!

I like this little explanation of the history of Easter....it stems from a spring goddess!

"A Little History: The origins of celebrating Easter seem to begin early in the third century with a movable feast honoring Christ’s resurrection. Early Christians may have eased cultural differences and religious conversions by relating their feast of Christ’s “renewal” or resurrection with Anglo-Saxon’s pagan spring celebrations involving Eostre, the goddess of spring and renewal, who was depicted at times with a hare or eggs. The Germans, much later in the 1500s, introduced the Easter Bunny or the “Oschter Haws” who would lay colored eggs in hidden caps and bonnets of boys and girls on Easter morning.. By the time this tradition was brought to the United States, it was popular to leave out baskets for bunny and egg shaped sweets. Easter is now celebrated religiously and/or secularly throughout the world"
