Keeping with the theme of warmer weather and spring renewal, many people will turn an eye towards finally scratching that gardening itch. The internet is always filled with gorgeous pictures on countless blog rolls of spring flower and vegetable gardens. As we are visual creatures, this can easily conjure up the urge to dabble in a bit of your own gardening. While starting a garden from scratch does incur a little bit of cost, once you learn the basics you’ll find that a well maintained garden is really quite inexpensive and satisfying. This is especially true when compared to some other hobbies out there. With that said, a great outdoor garden needs the right tools, equipment, and accessories to get most beginners started off on the right foot.
For better or for worse, springtime has arrived. The chill is turning to warm, the showers have become all too frequent, and everything has begun to bloom. Under normal circumstances this is one of the best times of the year. With all that has been going on around the world in the year 2020, however, things may not feel as rosy as they have in the past. With the pandemic in full swing a lot of us are sheltering at home and that means work for a lot of us has been put on hold. No one feels the pinch more than independent workers, a category which craftsman and artists fall into. While people all over are turning to online shopping to help cure the boredom of quarantine and social distancing, consider picking up some seasonal cheer by seeking out some unique handmade spring gifts.
Winter has retreated and, at last, warmer months have arrived. With the onset of spring we are going to find ourselves spending more time outdoors whether it be in a park, walking around our neighborhoods, or in our own backyards. For dog owners, that means our beloved canine companions will be accompanying us. Since we both will be spending more time outdoors that means we need to find some fun, interactive, outdoor dog play toys so we both can make the most of it.
Let’s face it, so far the year 2020 has been a doozy. The whole of humanity has been put on edge by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19, the resulting respiratory disease caused by the virus in humans. It seems that everywhere you turn there are just as many opinions on the virus and what to do about it as there are human beings on the Earth. As scientists learn more about the virus and how it spreads it has become apparent that, in the absence of a vaccine or treatment for those suffering from COVID-19, the practice of quarantine and social distance are the most effective means of slowing down the spread of the disease enough for our health systems to cope with the sudden influx of patients.
