Today is Earth Day and I thought I’d share some photos of wildflowers and such that James and I took this weekend. These tiny little wildflowers are all over the ground at State Parks here in California right now and even alongside the roads.
The deer show up anywhere they please, but you can always see them at particular golf courses near me. They love to eat that special grass they plant. The golf courses try to scare them off, but if you plant it, they will come.
I love California Poppies! With their bright orange color they are easy to spot in the woods or alongside highways and byways. I always welcome their bright orange color every Spring.
The wildflowers are so tiny and sweet. There were moths, butterflies and other bugs out for the day too. Pollinating the flowers and finding mates. They eat ravenously, especially after the cocoon stage. A tiny and perfect ecosystem.
Did you know, that if anything is wrong with an ecosystem that there are early signs? Mutations, sickness, young dying off and species acting differently because of illness or being displaced from their habitat. Depending on where this occurs the indicators can be felt differently but the results in the end are the same. Eventual death and annulation from our big blue planet.
Do you know any animal species that are endangered and disappearing? There is a website for “Earth’s Endangered Creatures.” It horrifies me to read it. Just the creatures in North America alone are staggering. How many are already extinct? Do yourself a favor, visit my links and become more aware.
We have to heal our wounded world. Today it’s more important then ever! The chaos that swirls around this quagmire has benefited only human beings. Even if it’s something small, anything we can do will surely help. Let’s do our part.
