Gotta Love this Earth!
Happy Earth Day, everyone! Today, let's take a moment to appreciate the wonder and beauty that is our planet. Full of natural resources, incredible landscapes, plants, animals and insects with jaw-dropping features, unexpected patterns, colors not even Crayola could come up with; our world gives us much to appreciate and respect. Though I love writing and value expression through words, I do admit our language has limitations. Sometimes it's best to let pictures do the talking (they say a picture is worth a thousand words or something like that, but after all, I'm just a blogger?!) I think these pictures visually express just how truly awesome our planet is. These were taken from Amazing Earth's Facebook page, (you should "like" it to see more cool pictures), or check out their webpage, www.myamazingearth.com. Here are some of my favorites:
- Frozen Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis
- Solar Eruption!
- Glow in the dark mushrooms!
- Swarm of Budgies in Queensland, Australia
- Darth Vader or the flower Aristolochia salvador platensis??
- Weedy Sea Dragon (the seahorse's weird uncle)
- A tree growing on a dead log in Fairy Lake, Canada
- Red Beach, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil (home country to one of our own, Manoella!)
- Beyonce isn't the only one with moves...
As we look at these pictures (and say wow, I wish I got out of the house more often), our marveling may lead to hoping that sights like these can be protected and preserved. Here at Stadler Nurseries, we are committed to being environmentally conscientious and supporting businesses who share similar values.
