We have to work Monday so we're celebrating all weekend. I have seedlings to transplant, compost tea brewing that should be ready and LOTS of wildflowers to transplant.
The small bed in the front yard has been clear of old bushes to make way for beneficial, bee-friendly plants.
What are you doing to celebrate Earth day?
