Happy Earth Day!

We celebrate Earth Day today!

If you want to get your hands into the earth on this beautiful spring day, Waukesha Floral has a nice selection of pansies, $6.99 for a 6-pack, and in a nice mix of colors.

Here is a short poem to remind you that we are all part of this planet we live on, and we all have a responsibility to take care of it in our own small ways.  

Earth Day  by Jane Yolen
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.
