Today is Earth Day and I had intended to do an earth day post but I've been busy. Therefore I'm going to show some recent nature shots from my immediate area which make me grateful for the beautiful world I'm lucky enough to live in.
I think one of my favorite things about where I live (North Carolina) is the abundance of trees.I complain a lot about the development in my area which has sometimes resulted in a slash and burn approach to new construction, but I am so lucky for all the woodland walks that have been preserved.
I also have a lot of trees at my house which provide shade in the summer and help keep my air conditioning bills down.
There is a lake with a park and greenway trails within walking distance of my house which I am able to enjoy.
My garden is wild and woolly and for the most part I like that although it could stand a little work at the moment.I am happy that my wild garden provides homes and nourishment for many wild animals.
I guess I'll wrap it up here and I'm wishing you a happy earth day today and everyday!
