Happy Earth Day

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.

    Well Done! Gorgeous picture of you pear tree, not to mention the Wisteria. Why do you think there was another wall at the side of the house?

    The Wisteria is spectacular. Wish it would grow like that here.
    The kids are pretty cute too!
