Happy Earth Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Earth Day. I had a very satisfying and tiring day. What better way to spend Earth Day than...
Working the earth...
I planted 11 tomato seedlings (Gold Medal heirloom, Purple Cherokee heirloom, Beef Steak heirloom), 6 heirloom eggplant, 4 heirloom Ancho chiles, 4 heirloom Jalapenos, 4 heirloom Pepperoncinis, 5 heirloom cucumbers, 2 sugar snap peas on the east deck, 6 strawberries on the east deck, and repotted two perennial flowering plants.

And welcoming the birds...They were very busily flying back and forth, taking turns flying away and placing the nesting material inside the house. It will be such fun to watch a beautiful new bird family expand its feathered presence in the world again this year.

And bringing out the garden furniture...
And welcoming back the water play table and allowing Amilia to take some photos...
And remembering to be thankful for every blessing we receive...

In Amilia's words, "Life is rough."
But I remind her, "that is why we are tough."
Wishing you all the strength required
to meet life's everyday challenges
and the perspective with which
to see each blessing.
