About Cindy A. Johnson

I live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I love to read, work in my flower and vegetable gardens, feed and watch the birds in the yard, sit on the front porch looking at the mountains and go camping. I also like to watch wildlife, including my cats and dog (ha!). I write online articles on a variety of subjects. Check out my book reviews at: http://readerjots.wordpress.com, wonderful nature stuff at http://mynaturenotes.wordpress.com and assorted articles on interesting stuff at http://Esmeowl12.hubpages.com. My first ebook was published in January 2012: "Alphamania: An Alphabet Resource for Teachers and Parents." Check out the blog at http://alphabetletters.wordpress.com.

Keep Our Bears Safe!

Remember to maintain a safe distance from the bears (and all wildlife) in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The bears are hungry and are feeding on the abundant fruits available to them.

Purple-y Day

Today seems like it should be a purple-y kind of day and I have just the right photo to demonstrate it. These bright pansies brighten my mood and encourage me on this chilly spring morning. Hope you enjoy them, too!
