For Earth Day, it looks like nature decided to give herself a present–around here, anyway. The ground in our part of Virginia hasn’t seen substantial precipitation since March 5. When it was snow. But today, when May flowers are already in bloom, April showers have finally arrived.
It’s a luxurious feeling to go out and wander among your plants in the morning and, instead of having to lug watering cans or turn on a sprinkler, be able to simply admire the work Mother Nature’s doing for you. There’s nothing quite as beautiful as green plants surrounded by soft, damp earth.
Happy Earth Day!
