2010 Atlanta snowfall



Today, there is 1/4 inch of snow on the ground and the sunny backyard scene is magical.  Birds are foraging and the bees are mostly tucked inside their hives. The last extensive outside bee activity was 01-Jan-2010 when the mid-day temperature went to 48°F.

Spring is around the corner--I say "bring on the Mahonia and Red Maple bee forage". In the book Eating Animals, Jonathan Safran Foer says "everything is possible again." That's how I feel.

"In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people."
— Ruth Harrison, "Animal Machines"
