And my brother´s birthday!
Edit: I´ve got the real live magazine now – the image appears without a layer of text on the inside:
Happy 46st Earth Day to you!
The dog is getting his fill of the snow while it’s still here, writhing around ecstatically in every patch.
A mild day of firsts on the little farm. First shorts day (although there’s still lots of snow in the woods). First mosquitoes (yay!). First tick sightings (whoohoo!). First day outside for the Silkies (I installed the doors on the other end of the greenhouse, Silkieland, and the little featherheads were opened up to the outdoors. Only the rooster took advantage, leading to…). The first rooster rumble. The red rooster came out with a beak full of white feathers and got a water dish thrown at him for his trouble (he was very offended).
Really, today felt like the first day of spring.
And happy birthday (bearthday) to my Earth Day-born brother, who celebrates the Earth daily with his gorgeous photography.
And Happy Birthday, to my brother, born early in the history of Earth Day. I’ve always thought that was auspicious. I keep thinking he’s ear-marked to be some champion of ecological sustainability, like it or not. What he is, is one hell of a nature photographer. Maybe, same difference:)
