There is no Planet B

On this Earth Day, I am feeling a little under the weather so I am content to celebrate the day from inside the house looking at my garden.  I have tradition at the DragonFly garden to plant a new tree every year on Earth Day.  This year it will be a few days late, but I promise it will be done.

This year we also have the March for Science, an event that I fully endorse and support.  All of us gardener are experiencing climate change on a daily basis, especially those of us in the sub tropic.  The trees are blooming at the wrong time of the year, many species of birds no longer come to our gardens and weather patterns changes are occurring in short time periods.  There is no question that our planet is changing and we humans are responsible for that change.  It is our responsibility to sound the alarm and take our political leaders to task, especially those that are climate change deniers.  I also make sure that companies getting my dollars are on board with my views on climate change and are doing something to support the cause to help our planet. It’s important to support those corporations and expose those that are causing damage to our environment.   

Today I am posting pictures from my last visit to Everglades National Park, one of the most endanger ecosystems in our planet and one that is so important to the survival of my community.

Sorry to hear you are under the weather. I totally agree with you about the planet and how we spend our dollars. I refuse to support food companies that aren't in line with protecting the environment and providing healthy food. If we all did that, we would force a quick change. Can't wait to see what kind of tree you are planting.
