What a beautiful Azalea we received for Valentine’s Day. The plant in a box with a heart dangling from the front took its place in our window and took to the sunlight as if to say “I am yours, Mr. Sunshine!”
Here in northern Indiana by Lake Michigan, Bluebirds are “never” seen in January or February. This picture was taken by Lake Michigan in Frbruary.
The Christmas Amaryllis
The title of this post brought back memories from childhood when, like the little bird in the picture, we played King of the Mountain.
It took several recalls to remember the name of the game when the goal was to prevent anyone from knocking you off the top of a pile of dirt. Many hours of fun and laughter without a phone or computer.
While we understand that children do still play outside, our internet search for the name of “King of the Mountain” returned computer game after computer game.
If you are searching for outdoor activities to play with your children, the people at this website have a list of 30. We have very fond memories of laughing and playing those games and some of them as adults like Red Rover, our favorite!
