Environmental Eleanor

Loved the stark look of the film adaptation.
Little did I know that while watching Katherine Hepburn in "The Lion of Winter", portray Eleanor of Aquitaine, I was seeing the story of my children's greatest grandmother. If the family histories recorded at are to be believed, their family links all the way back to the Grandmother of England.

I suppose there are truly thousands of descendants by now, so we'll work our way slowly back up the line with the magnifying glasses to inspect a little more closely at those little waving green leaves on the family tree at

Looking back at my posts on the environment, you might get the impression that we're some sort of urban hippy wannabe's, well then I guess you'd be right. We do have worms in the backyard making good earth for the garden, or should I say Yarden? We planted edible shrubs in the front yard. We're not going to be eating the azaleas, we planted blueberry bushes. We were pleased to find out our neighbors had some already and more neighbors are interested in growing tomatoes and fig trees.
