Oh ho ho! It is such an exciting prospect, this season called spring! Everywhere, the world shows signs of coming back to life. The woodchucks have awoken from their winter slumbers, the birds are building nests, the trees are erupting into the cutest little pompoms and flowerettes.
Daffodils and flowers are showing off their ephemeral gorgeosity. The spring peepers are peeping away on the sunny warm days.
Even the wild plants and flowers are in on the show, with cheery coltsfoot blooms on the roadside
and these sweet little weirdos that are a phase of the horsetail plant popping up. How oddly charming they are!
This earth we live on is amazing. We should have a holiday to celebrate it... oh wait! That would be Earth Day! And it is coming up in just a few days!
While Earth Day might not be a federal bank holiday, don't let the fact that it isn't a day off of work give you the idea that it is an unimportant holiday. It might be, actually, THE most important holiday, for without our dear planet, we would be nowhere! We would have nothing! We could not exist! Thank you Planet Earth, for providing us the most dazzling home we could desire!
So take a moment, on this Earth Day, in this beautiful spring, to reflect on just how lucky we are to call this incredible sphere our home, and think on how *you* can show your thanks to our Mother Earth.
(If you think that supporting local artisans and makers - instead of purchasing products made overseas and shipped in with a large fossil fuel footprint - might be a good way to say "I love you" to Mother Earth, consider visiting us at one of these great markets coming up!)
(Also, our Celebrate Spring sale on our non-GMO soy candles runs through Earth Day! Enter code spring17 at checkout to save 25% on all our fabulous essential oil scented candles.)
Happiest of Earth Days to you!
