Tomorrow is Earth Day. Traditionally, it's a day set aside for environmental clean-ups, hikes, recycling awareness, and tree hugging. So I headed outside to hug my trees - and get some photos of them nearly one month into "official" spring (last week's snow aside..)
This is a good week to check on what the trees are up to in your neighborhood. Are they leafing out? Flowering? Are birds nesting in them? Have their twig-ends been nibbled by hungry deer?
Give them a hug and wish them Happy Earth Day.
