Happy Earth Day!

Our weather forecast was for a rainy Earth Day, so yesterday -- when it was sunny -- I took some pictures for today's blog post. You can't celebrate Earth Day without bunnies, so here are the ones on our front porch. Bunners now lives with my daughter, so I can't take her photo for this post.  

Yesterday morning the sun burned through a curtain of mist,
creating drama behind our house.

I watched as the mist slowly lifted over Fox Island, across the water, and revealed a stunning blue sky. Soon our resident heron took up her post on a floating dock surrounded by glistening blue water. (Today it's all grey out there.)

In the yard, the sun illuminated
new hosta leaves
and sparkled on dew drops.

Inside, I added some gold beads to my wool appliqué. Now that it's raining, I think I'll spend some more time sewing.

p.s. Did you know that Earth Day has been celebrated since 1970?

Have a colorful day

Love the bunnies!
