Earth Day


Shutter Sisters theme today is b kind to earth and they ask what is on our mind as Earth Day approaches.  For me, it is rain. 

Spring has come early to Central Virginia – almost a month earlier than last year.  I don’t like that.  Summers here are hot and humid.  I can’t get my garden to grow except by watering it once and sometimes twice a day.  My husband and I have discussed putting in rain barrels under the gutters, but in the middle of summer, there can be weeks without any rain at all.

I’m happy to see the spring rain.  The James River is high right now (see the post on my photo blog here) and there is a danger of flooding in some areas.  I still don’t think we can get too much rain right now though in preparation for an early and hot summer.
