Happy Earth Day!

We planted pansies today for our front porch in honor of Earth Day!
Baylor was such a great helper.
The flowers are pretty.
Plants need water to grow.

Take time to smell the flowers.
When I taught school I loved reading Earth Day books. We read some of our favorites, The Lorax, Wump World, In My Garden, Which is Which?, and The Great Trash Bash.

Earth Day

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.
And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
That's why we
Celebrate this day.
'That's why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
