Every fall the television season starts off, the excitement of returning shows after a long summer break and even more excitement over the new shows airing seems to grab every ones attention.  However lets not forget those series that have been reliable for years and now face their very last season!  It's sad to seem them go, some cut short, other coming to a natural end.  But don't wait to the season finale to watch these shows, enjoy the whole last season from start to finish!!!  Check out my Hubpages article on some shows this fall that you should watch!

Jumping Azalea Bushes 5/6/12

Beautiful azalea bushes in bloom last week at the end of April! These two bushes(yes there's two there) are at my grandmother's house and are at least 40 years old are older!!! They have beautiful flowers in the spring and shiny, wax like leaves all summer. It's weird to say I have a favorite shrub but this would be it!! And specifically these two, which use to act as a hurdle when my cousins and I were young, running down the side yard to jump over it like we were horses (we had good imaginations and my cousin horseback rode). They were not as healthy back then, probably because of us jumping over them lol but now they are better then ever and make a great little hedge, not to mention a beautiful color in the spring!

Starting my vegetable Garden! 4/30/12

After a very warm start to the spring, temps have cooled down a bit, leaving the question of planting on every gardeners vegetable garden has been needing a lot of work lately so today I finally got some extra soil and dug up a small corner to start planting! Although it is too early for many vegetables in southern Connecticut, the unofficial planting date is May 15th, it is warm enough to plant some cold weather plants like broccoli and lettuce! In fact I started my broccoli from seed in a pot on my back deck and finally transplanted them into my garden today! (see photo below) I can't wait to plant more!

Suburban Wildlife Photography

Here's a new photography hub on Hubpages called "Suburban Wildlife Photography" i may make a series out of this one depending on the shots i can get of wildlife in my backyard or in my suburban community.  This hub focuses on photographs of a rabbit and some Robins I took recently.  The rabbit is a frequent visitor to my backyard and is not always easily photographed.

New Hub on Hubpages 2/6/12

just finished a hub I've been thinking about for months!  It's about Gilligan's Island, the TV show from the 1960's.  It looks at the environmental and sustainable related subtext in plot lines of certain episodes.  It's amazing how forward thinking the show could be interpreted and how it could be used to help teach about these problems via comedy!  so read here:

Winter day on the water 1/30/12

A seagull resting on a bolder along the Connecticut shoreline on a pretty warm winter day.  Actually this bolder is unlike other rock formations in the area and is a remnant of Glacier movement from the Ice age that formed Long Island Sound!  If you look closely at the horizon, just above is the outline of Long Island.

iPhone photo from train 1/27/12

The photo is of sunset along the CT coast on Friday January 27th. Because it was taken on a moving train its a little blurry but I decided not to touch it because it adds a little bit to the photo especially the ripples in the foreground

Hubpages: Spring 2012 Season Premieres what I’ll be watching!

As we pass the holidays and enter into a new year, mid season premiers return to TV.  However some shows are just starting their season premiers!  Some of these shows have even been on hiatus for a while and as a fan I've been dying to get my weekly dose.  So i wrote an article on the spring 2012 season premieres i will be watching.  I only included shows that are starting a new season not mid season ones.  Each show I listed comes highly recommended!  I hope you enjoy and maybe find a new show to watch or if a fan already now know when the show will be back!
