Spring is here. Yeah! Spring is here. Boo!
Spring is finally here. Deep blue sky, bright and sunny, temperatures in the 60s and you could hear the sandhills flying over on the northerly migration. The most definite sign, however, is the first flower of the year.
We had three crocuses blooming today.
So why the boo? Don’t I like spring?
Certainly! But the one part I don’t like is seeing what we do to the planet. Part of our nice spring day included cleaning up the yard. Here is just a sampling of the trash in our yard.
The sad part… this is nothing. Insignificant. Not even noticeable when you start looking along the sides of our major streets and highways… or looking in retention ponds and wetland areas near strip malls. You hear people complain about goose droppings. I don’t think I’ve ever heard these same people complain about the droppings of our society and consumerism.
Ok, enough venting for today. Get out there and enjoy the nice weather while it lasts… and maybe pick up a few pieces of trash too. Wildlife will thank you.
