Here I am planting trees on a very cold Earth Day.
The weather went from summer like to winter in one day, so hmm, is there such a thing as climate change? I think yes , not that we are really doing much to stop it.
When a young woman asked me if I wanted a sign to put in my lawn "Stop the Pipeiline" or something like that, I pointed out the scores of SUV's and trucks parked in the lot at the Botanical Gardens. As long as we continue to promote the use of gas guzzling vehicles; turning out a light or planting a tree on Earth Day makes us feel good, but isn't doing us much good. I took a free shuttle to the event. A smoky, smelly, vehicle it was; so much for my efforts to lessen global warming. Well, I keep trying.
This old tree has seen better days.
As for me. Only 4 more days till retirement!!
