“Do you suppose She’s a wildflower?”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Earth Day: Marches for Science is very popular this year, as is Climate Literacy .
Ole Mum could use a good attorney right about now. The Environmental Defense Fund and Earth Justice come to mind.
Mother Jones magazine provides an informative checklist to help sort through the maze of which organizations sound too good to be true and are, and what groups are doing good solid work and need support. I am beginning to frequent the The Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School to keep up with the current US Governments hi-jinks with our Mom, and find it easy to navigate and factual, which is very reassuring.
This week’s WordPress Photo theme is Earth, and nothing says earth to me more than a hardy, resilient desert wildflower.

My hope is everyone received their invitation, and enjoys their gift of some time outside with Mother Earth today. Peace and Blessings.
It would be easy
Not to notice the Eagle
Watching close my day.

It’s National Poetry Month.
“Haiku” is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consisting of only 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.
The birds are just everywhere this week, and I explore deeper into the settings of the camera to see what I can do with focusing.
May your day be a safe and peaceful one.
“It’s spring fever.
That is what the name of it is.
And when you’ve got it,
You don’t quite know what it is
You do want,
But it just fairly
Makes your heart ache,
You want it so!”
― Mark Twain
