Happy Earth Day! Do your bit for Mother Earth

Happy Earth Day Everyone! There are many things we can do to save Mother Earth but one thing we can do that is so easy is to simply plant a tree!
This is one of the best things you can do for your mother Earth. Plant a sapling or bury a few seeds in your garden soil and watch it grow. If you do not have a garden, buy a pot and fill it with soil. Bury the seeds down into the soil and moisten them daily to let them sprout seedlings in a few weeks. It is a small but significant way on your part to contribute more oxygen to the atmosphere.

This morning I am posting a GORGEOUS quilt that my best friend, Phyllis (from The Woodlands, TX.) made for me. This is only her 3rd or 4th quilt she's made. I think she is a genius at the sewing machine. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful friend make something so beautiful for me. Thank you so much, Phyllis. I truly love you!!!

2nd post....some pretty flowers for your enjoyment.

The quilt is beautiful, as are the flowers. Lucky gal!
Well we didn't plant any trees this year, but we moved a Dogwood so it would survive, does that count? Besides we live on 45 acres of what were fields that we let grow into woods, over the last 20 years, so I think we are on the plus side carbon footprint-wise!

Dear Aunt Diane
I am back
I forgot to tell you something, so I am back.
I have been planting trees and seeds, so they can grow up and help save our planet.
I saw your flowers in my dream last night- so then I remembered I forgot to tell you.
First- your flowers were beautiful
Second- I planted some trees just like YOU suggested.
nitey nite- see you soon
love
