February is National Birding Month!
Winter weather is still in full force {after another 5″ of snow yesterday and more on the way tomorrow!} and we want to keep our feathered friends happy!  Birds really get a boost from some human help during these cold winter months if we keep our feeders full.  A tip- stamp down the snow below feeders; that way, ground-feeding birds will be able to gather up the seed that drop from the feeders!  Celebrate National Birding Month and buy yourself a new birdfeeder.  Birdfeeders are 20% off for the month of February at Bauer’s!

Houseplant Highlight
Take a look at the easy Ivy for a great houseplant!  Whether you grow ivy up as a vine, trailing from a basket, or horizontally on a mantle or tabletop, it filters harmful chemicals released by everyday products. Dark green varieties add contrast to bright spots; those variegated with white or gold lighten dim areas.
