Earth Day 2012

Happy Earth Day...

In Tune With Mother Nature
If you listen for the songbirds
As they greet the summer sun,
And love the way the wind can make
The trees sing just for fun;
If you like to hear the ocean
As it drums upon the shore,
And imagine all the whales out there,
And hope they'll sing some more;
If you think of all the animals
As players in a band,
Each with a lovely tune to play,
All needed on the land;
And know that as a boy or girl
A woman or a man
You have a vital role to play
In Mother Nature's plan;
If you honor every living thing
As a part of nature's treasure
You're in tune with Mother Nature
So let's all sing her song together.

What a wonderful Earth Day tribute Marie. The Cardinal couple is just as cute as can be but you know which pics are my favorites. The squirrels in your area have adorable little ears, they are different from the ones here. I especially like the fellow sitting on the fence watching you.

Happy Earth Day!

Awww, these pictures are wonderful! I especially like the squirrel reaching for the seeds. The male feeds the female Cardinal as part of the courtship ritual.

Happy earth Day!! Love the shot of the cardinals, mine have been very busy around here. I am so jealous of your squirrel photos as we don't have any on our farm :( Not enough "nuts" I guess!! LOL

What a wonderful post Marie. Happy Earth Day to you and all your beautiful critters. Love the words to this song or poem, and your photos are Beautiful, each and every one.
The other day I was sitting on my deck listening to all the birds and critters and it was music to my ears. I can only imagine all of Creation singing to their Creator,including us. That would be "Awesome".
We do need to be good stewards of the earth, which belongs to The Lord.

Thank you once again for your friendly visit to my blog. I am really glad we have had a chance to meet.
Have a great week ahead.
Dianne :)

I'm glad everyone has enjoyed my critters. I did take these pics myself. :) The squirrel on the fence is looking at me through the kitchen window. He's begging for peanuts. :)
