Earth Day 2017

If we do not permit the Earth to produce beauty and joy, it will in the end not produce food, either. — Joseph Wood Krutch

I hope everyone took a moment today to appreciate, acknowledge and protect the earth around us.  Happy Earth Day all.

Happy Earth Day 2014

Earth Day 2014

Our April showers paused just long enough for me to take a walk this afternoon and snap some photos of our spring blooming trees in honor of Earth Day.

My fingers are crossed hoping these wet days really will bring more May flowers…

iPhoneography Monday: Earth Day

Did you know that close to 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water? In response to Lens and Pen by Sally’s challenge to share portraits of Nature in celebration of Earth Day I want to post four new iPhone pictures featuring views of the water in Washington State.

These first two images were taken today by my mom Sharon as she walked along the spectacular Columbia River in Vantage, WA.

The next two are from the beautiful Marina Beach in Edmonds, WA.  The park was full of families enjoying this sunny spring evening and I hope a few of them were thinking about Earth Day too.
