I took this picture standing under the canopy of a weeping cherry tree in the memorial garden of our church. The tree only blooms for a few days each year, and it is spectacular. The first time I ever saw it in bloom was the morning my grandmother died in 2001. So whenever I see it blooming, I remember that morning and feel a strong surge of emotions and connection to my Granna.
Truth be told, i didn’t do that much to celebrate Earth Day, other than spend some time in the garden enjoying nature. And talk with my boys about recycling and caring for the earth. I stopped at the natural foods store that afternoon and since I was in my husband’s car I didn’t have my usual assortment of reusable grocery bags. I couldn’t bear that thought of using plastic bags on Earth Day! At the natural foods store! So I bought yet another canvas bag while I was there. So, yeah, that was how I celebrated.
