I think every day should be earth day. There shouldn’t be a moment when we are not considering the impact our actions have on the earth. This is our home.
I have spent the last number of days working on a drainage project. Not specifically for earth day, but I have considered all the benefits of this project to the earth – less water in the basement so no electricity usage on a pump, less humidity so no necessity for a dehumidifier and a drier warmer basement so less consumption of heat in the cooler months. And perhaps even a more efficient distribution of rain water to where it is needed.
Mother earth must have been pleased with my efforts because we have had two weeks of glorious April weather – no clouds, lots of sun and lovely temperatures. – to be working outside.
A few pictures to share with you. The first one above is of our lovely purple wisteria. The second profiles our 200+ years old pear tree in full blossom and the one below of the two monkeys playing around in the trench with the landscape fabric – kids, the things they do.
