Earth Day 2007

Originally uploaded by modernemama.
The sun is shining, it's 70+ and the forsythia and magnolia are in bloom.
Earth Day started badly as we drove to the drop off with Ruby Red and a load of old cell phones, telephones and other non-functioning e-paraphanalia, only to find that the Town of Huntington held it'd recycling day yesterday! A waste of time and gas driving there and we'll have to recycle this stuff another day in another way.
Worse, I found three perfectly drilled holes on the garage siding, which means the Carpenter Bees are back, so we'll have to get out there with something unecologically friendly before they make swiss cheese out of the redwood.
But on the upside we saw three red-tailed hawks circling the house this afternoon, we've turned the heating off but haven't yet turned the fans or the airco on, I gathered a bucketful of the most enormous pinecones from the huge fir tree and the cherry trees are about to blossom.
On balance, a beautiful Earth Day,
