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?):
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.
