Today is Earth Day
Whether you live a green life everyday
or try your best to do your part
I hope you get a chance
to spend a moment
to breathe in the sweetly fragrant air
walk through the woods
or enjoy a patch of green grass and sunlight
in your little corner of the world.
The rain came back to my own cozy nook.
Yesterday's showers were just too tempting for me...
Delicate blooms in the tree outside my open kitchen window
filled my house with a seductive perfume.
Drawing me away from my uninspired morning chores.
I really wish I knew what kind of tree this is.
It never bears fruit but it really does smell like orange blossoms
when it blooms each Spring.
We don't usually get cool wet days this time of the year.
But it's mid April and up in the Sierras not too far from me
they are getting a few feet of snow.
The climate here is definitely changing.
In a few days we'll be back to our normal April weather.
Lots of sun and near 80 temps.
Everyone here revels in it
(My husband tells me I need to move to the UK, lol!)
So today I savor the smell
of damp leaves
and sweet blooms.
This quiet magical time in my garden will
soon give way to squeals and hoots and hollers.
The warm weather beckoning my suburban
neighborhood to haul out
basketballs and beer.
And we enjoy our warm days out here too.
But for now I'll keep this magic all to myself...
and share it with you of course.
Take care of your little patch of paradise.
Enjoy it with your friends and loved ones.

as much as you are able to
Leave it just as enchanted and beautiful
for all our kids.
