Celebrate Earth Day

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children.

(Native American proverb)


  1. Oh this is my one for sure. Earth day, a simple post Rose but so much to the point. I am celebrating tomorrow with my little granddaughter. We will plant a tree together and sprinkle wild flower seeds. If everyone did that worldwide what a difference it would make.
    Thank you for drawing peoples attention to it, in such a beautiful way.

  2. Planting wildflowers and a tree with your granddaughter--the perfect way to celebrate, Cheryl!

  3. Wonderful sentiment, Rose, as Cheryl says right to the point. I have work to finish then I'm going outside to plant my new viburnum, and maybe another shrub or two. (I hear a nursery calling my name...)

  4. Thats a fantastic picture and I love the proverb.

    I've not heard much about earth day here (ashamed to say so). Husband did some planting this evening, not sure that counts though, if you don't know about earth day.

  5. Rose, I love the proverb. Appropriate for us to remember today and always. Your pines show up so stately. I've never looked- really looked at them like this.

  6. Me again Rose, Sorry! I just read your reply about your cat. I can't understand how people can be cruel to animals. He is so georgious, and so much like my old cat who also had blue eyes and a voice like a siammese!

  7. I found you through Blotanical and am I glad that it has showed me the way to this lovely blog. Keep up the good work and may we see many more of your garden delights.
