New Email Subscription Service

Credit: ENGGtalks Ecological Gardening has switched from Feedburner to follow.it . This is because Google has decided to let the email subscription portion of Feedburner lapse in July. Fortunately, I was able to make the switch in timely fashion and import my subscribers, who will get my posts with no interruptions. Follow.it offers subscribers a choice of delivery options besides straight email, which I think is pretty cool.    New subscribers are always welcome! So if you like my posts, please do subscribe. Since this is a slow blog—not to say glacial—I promise you absolutely will not be inundated with emails. 

The View from the Porch

So I go out on my back porch while eating a sandwich--it's a sunny 50 degrees at noon, how could you not--to check for flickers. They come every spring and I want to write about them and the ants. No flickers. Just robins, grackles, starlings, house finches, the usual citified birds. But then I cast about a little more and notice the woodpecker in the pagoda dogwood, the nuthatch creeping down the maple trunk, the mourning dove down among the fallen leaves and-- O glory!--up in the air is a red-tailed hawk circling high, white wing feathers flashing, tail spread out, fine as anything.
