Earth Day dawning. 

View from my room this morning. 

Happy Earth Day

This is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day.   I remember way back then as a wee lass, soon after the EPA was formed, hearing the word “ecology” for the first time.   I had a school folder with the ecology symbol on it (remember this?):

  
We’ve come a long way since then.

Chinquipin oak.

Tomorrow is Earth Day.  Yesterday at work  they were giving away tree saplings to plant for the occasion.  Monte brought home this Chinquipin Oak tree.  This morning I put it in the earth.  Hopefully it will be a keeper.

We have 4 or 5 cedar trees that have died from drought on our back property line.  We need to take them down, but I hope we can plant some newbies in their place over the next few weeks.
