Celebrating Nature

I was sitting out on our porch swing this afternoon taking a moment to read and enjoy the sunny weather. I looked up from my book and was struck by the brilliant blueness of the sky. We live in such a beautiful world and being that this is Earth Day, I thought would snap some pictures to share. We should always care about taking careΒ  of the earth, for this is the only one we are going to get!

I faithfully watered it every day and I am pretty certain that there were drivers passing by wondering why I was watering something that looked very small and pitiful. But now every Spring I love looking out into our yard and seeing the lovely blooms.

  1. Earth Day should be more than a once a year event, if we hope to save our planet Earth Day must be everyday! Your trees and yard are beautiful. Benjamin and I both love Dandelions, though most consider them to be weeds. As Pooh Bear says : “Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.” I was hoping that you had the thingy that enables the enlarging of your photos for closer inspection of details, no such luck. I wanted to be able to inspect that box closely to check for a ventilation source. Then upon looking at the box from all possible angles, my attention was drawn to the concrete blocks that look like steps and the solution became obvious. Only a person on the smallish side would need steps to get into this box and that must mean that it is…YOU, the box is your hiding place. I was wondering though, do you have blocks inside so that you can get your smallish self out again? Thank-you!
