Every Day Is Earth Day...

We came upon these two male Wood Ducks along the shore of Stanfield Marsh during our morning walk last Friday.

Peggy and I were loving the spring weather last week, working in the garden and the greenhouse, while today we are enjoying a brief return to winter with 4 inches of fluffy new snow on the ground.

Every drop of precipitation makes for a more bountiful spring as over 100 species of well established native perennials bring our wild garden back to life.

Today is just one of 365 days in which the year 2010 gives us the opportunity to celebrate the miracle of life on Earth.

Happy Earth Day! I've been wondering how you are. Glad to see you are celebrating the day. Love this wood duck photo, jim. We discovered a pair that likes to hang out at our little pond. They are such beautiful creatures.

the issues confronting our condition are of genuine worry as we take in more about the effects of a worldwide temperature alteration, the rising worry over naturally associated wellbeing issuses.
