Sunday was Earth Day.
I hadn’t paid much attention to the day until I watched the news on CBC that evening and saw the parades and people working to cleaning up waterways and parks across Canada.
People also planted trees along roadways and replaced fallen trees in parks.
In my lifetime, I’ve planted lots of trees in my yard. And now, more than 30 years later, I’m blessed with shade in the summer and huge drifts of leaves in the fall.
The leaves go into bags or onto my compost pile.
