Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

I am of part Native American decent but have never shown much interest in any of my heritage, due to I am from many people, a real mutt, an American. 

I believe my green thumb and love of nature comes from the indigenous blood flowing inside of me.  I would spend most of my time as a child in fields catching snakes and tadpoles, picking wild berries in spring and hazelnuts in the fall.  I was taught about wild plants and would actually forage meals of nuts and berries where I lived many years ago.  My father taught me to hunt and fish with respect to nature and the animals and I was actually given a knife to use when I was very young after given instructions on how to use it properly and safely.  I used to think of myself as the “herb lady” but as you can tell from my blog, this kind of got away from me.  I do only grow organic and still grow some herbs.  Many died when I had my Akita who loved to pee on anything green.  I think my large silver sage died of natural causes as they usually do. 

Enhanced pictures taken from one of the Powwow’s held in Tecumseh Michigan years ago.  I usually don’t take pictures but took a few of this one.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

Made me think of the old group, “Up With People.”  Very big for a short time.  Most people laughed at their upbeat message.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Forget me nots
Forget me nots

This truly is a post dedicated to change. I changed my Internet Explorer to 10 and was not able to access any photos in my library to insert into my posts. I just “changed” it back to 9 by deleting Internet Explorer from my recent upgraded programs on Windows 7 and voila’! So if any of you are having this problem, you can switch back only if you are still under the Windows 7 operating system.
