Color Study: Desert Sky
Alice Blue, Baby Blue, Sky Blue, Periwinkle, Peach, Carnation Pink and Rose.
I think this photo is so important. So many people think rabbits are just a fluffy animal for them to carry around like a teddy, and think they’re really cheap and easy to look after. Definitely some very important facts that everyone should know.
And dont bathe rabbits either, i can kill them of the stress it causes
Nazi coup in Ukraine: Natalia Vitrenko confronts Martin Schulz
Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, leader of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, visited the European Parliament in Strasbourg on February 26, 2014. Vitrenko’s remarks and question at a press conference given by European Parliament President Martin Schulz and Milos Zeman, President of the Czech Republic, shocked listeners and garnered major coverage on Czech television and in a release by the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN.
"I am Natalia Vitrenko, the leader of a left opposition party in Ukraine. I am the leader of a party, against which the Ukrainian Nazis have already begun witchhunts, for the purpose of physically eliminating me and the members of our party. Today in Ukraine, the offices of political parties are being burned on a mass scale, and employees in these offices are being killed. The homes of politicians who are disapproved of are being set on fire. Elected deputies of our legislature and local councils are getting beaten up, in order to make them carry out the demands of the terrorists and neo-Nazis of the Euromaidan’s Right Sector. In effect, the neo-Nazis have established their regime."
Earth Sheltered Homes
The earth sheltered house uses the ground as insulating blanket which effectively protects it from temperature extremes, wind, rain and extreme weather events. An earth sheltered home is energy-efficient, quiet, freeze-proof and low maintenance. Aesthetically an earth sheltered home blends in with the natural environment, leaving more yard space and more space for wildlife.
Fifteen feet below ground the soil maintains a fairly constant temperature equal to the annual average temperature of the area’s surface air. If the average temperature in your area is 55, that means the soil temperature at 15 feet is 55 degrees and in the winter you will only have to bring the temperature inside your earth sheltered home up thirteen degrees, to bring it up to a comfortable 68 degrees. Versus bringing up the inside temperature 68 degrees, if your home is above ground and the outside windchill is 0. In the summer, that 55 degree soil will also keep your home much cooler than an above ground home. Many earth homes incorporate passive solar designs lessening even further the need for fuel for heating or cooling…

the news of millions of bees dead, yet again
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.
