Happy Earth Day 2021

Today, as you all know, is Earth Day. In our household, in addition to celebrating this beautiful planet we live on, we also celebrate the birthday of our beautiful daughter Shannon. Because she and her husband live in North Carolina, we will actually be celebrating, via Zoom, on Saturday. But today is the anniversary of the day she was born forty-two years ago. Happy, happy, happy, Earth Day girl!

This year, to honor Earth Day, here are some pictures of small things taken in my very own yard. Now, I love grand vistas as much as the next person does, but there is a special place in my heart for the small things in the world—creatures that hop, creep, or fly as well as tiny plants that often go unnoticed as we hurry from task to task.

They have their own quiet beauty if we but take the time to look.

Happy Earth Day to you all!

  1. Shannon is the same age as my younger son! I fully agree that we need to celebrate the wee things along with the magnificent and I have SO enjoyed these photographs of what is around you today πŸ™‚

  2. Sending birthday greetings to Shannon! The hyacinths smelled lovely when I saw them. I can’t imagine how they could do that when they’re still in the bud. That patch of moss is like a garden in miniature.

  3. What a beautiful Earth Day celebration and pictures! My daughter-in-law shares a bday with your daughter. 🌎❣️

  4. Thanks Mom, for the birthday shout out and to all the birthday wishes!! πŸ™‚ Sharing a birthday with Earth Day isn’t a bad thing at all!
