Earth Day

The birthday girl

Violet in the violets
We spent earth day at Bithewold. There was a big celebration for a giant sequoia, it was her100th birthday. The girls enjoyed the children's concert, we had a picnic lunch, and enjoyed all the buds and blossoms popping out everywhere we looked.

I am loving right now, every day something new and spectacular is opening and bursting forth. I know if we don't go for a walk each day we will miss something. And all the animals are so busy, bustling about making nests to fill with babies, gathering food for babies, they are so cute in their serious work. And the birds have never sounded more wonderful, after such a long and cold winter.

With all of the terrible things that have been happening to this beautiful planet and it's animals and people this year, I am ever more grateful for each and every blossom, each new green shoot, each returning bird's song. And I am so thankful that our little corner of the world is still pretty good, and is having another glorious spring.
