Nature Notes

We cannot remember ever having a spring as late as this one. Usually by the 3rd week in April our trees are leafing out. The woods is still naked. Our grass is greening up and daffodils are blooming in the front. Despite the cool temperatures, the birds are right on schedule as their mating and nesting is more tied in with hours of daylight than the temperatures. Our goldfinches are mostly all finished molting and are now wearing their bright spring and summer wardrobe of yellow and black—for the males only. I am witnessing mating behavior which is often a tousle in the air like acrobats. Bob is busy keeping the three feeders full of niger seed. Last week I had a first sighting at this house where we have lived for almost 11 years—a Ruby-crowned kinglet! I saw them quite a few times at our old house where they enjoyed visiting the apple trees in spring. The ruby crowned kinglet is a very small bird and the red crown is not always visible. But there was no mistaking this beauty that was flitting about right outside our bedroom window. Bluebirds are looking for homes and we hope they choose our bluebird house. I’ve seen both individual bluebirds and the occasional pairs.

Bob and I hiked down to the creek last week in the late evening. It was one of our warmer days and the spring peepers were beginning to sing. If you are a long time listener then you know I can be a bit obsessed about the spring peepers, which are small frogs that sing in the spring near bodies of water. The average size is about the size of a quarter. Our goal was to see them in action but when we arrived at the creek the sounds seemed far away. We don’t know whether they stopped singing because we were there or if they really were not close in the first place. We will try again. While we were down there we talked about some of the changes in the creek bed and surrounding area. We already knew the creek bed had changed course due to fallen logs. This is not uncommon but it still surprises us because it is not just small change. One whole u shape is barren of water. There are small trees on the hillside that have fallen over due to very wet soil and probable lack of surrounding plants to hold it in. Erosion is a mighty force. We’re thinking about ways to slow it down.

Earth Week was last week and our town had the annual Take Pride in Washington Day. I got a crew of 9 people together and we cleaned up our usual spot which has a lot of garbage. Sometimes it doesn’t look like much until you get close and then there is more than you think because some is partially hidden. My husband volunteered at the Earth Day Celebration at Forest Park Nature Center in the afternoon so he made a whole day of it.

Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows' wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.

--Rainer Maria Rilke

I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
