Blooms and buds to celebrate Earth Day

It’s gray.

It’s cool, standing at 47ยบ F at 9 a.m.

Still, Mother Nature stirs me.

Happy 45th Earth Day, from the front yard of the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.

Is your yard celebrating Earth Day somehow? Are you celebrating Earth Day somehow? What’s the best Earth Day you’ve ever had, and why?

  1. Your flowers and shrubs look wonderful brother Mark. I looked out my window today, and the view was not conducive to celebration. We have no lawn, no parking lot, and no useable sidewalk. So, I looked at my photographs instead. Any port in a storm, right? Would you be interested in buying a lot of heavy machinery? There’s a former parking lot full that I’ll sell you cheap. All you gotta do is come and pick it up. It it still sits there unused in a month I’ll give it away.


  2. I had no idea Earth Day was in its 45th year. Really? Wow! Mark, I celebrated by walking around in a giant Zorb ball ( I think they’re called) and riding recycled bicycles. Very fun! Your flowers are beautiful!


    • Nice way to spend the Earth Day, Amy. Brave walking around in a Zorb. Recycled bicycle riding sounds fun, though. Yup, 45 years. It started the year after Woodstock, and I don’t think that was a cooincidence. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This was a great way to celebrate, including details about the different plants. I like the forsythia and the hyacinth which were showing their colors. I also like the idea of concerts and celebration for Earth Day, missing working with the preschool kids and did not have time to run to see grandies, Mark.


  4. My lawn is celebrating so much I’ve got to get the ’76 Cub Cadet out of the garage and knock it back an inch or two–go back to sleep, lawn, I don’t want to have to mow you for the next 6 months.


  5. Happy Earth Day Mark. Glad to see your plants are awakening from their long winter. I can’t wait to see them after they have bulked up! ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. I remember my first Earth Day was at some big concert in Central Park. Think I was about 17. Since then there hasn’t been so much of a fanfare and then it seems like it really picked up again. I’m glad your lawn is celebrating!
