Silent Spring

If you logged on to "Google" today,
you would have seen a tribute.
Today is the anniversary of the birthday
of Rachel Louise Carson.
As an environmentalist, she documented 
the detrimental effects of commercial pesticides
on the environment; particularly birds, as early as 1940.
In 1950 she turned her attention to conservation, and the 
problems caused by synthetic pesticides.
Her book  Silent Spring  led to a nationwide ban on DDT,
and inspired an environmental movement that led to the creation 
of the US Environmental Protection Agency.
Her efforts allow me the pleasure of
 observing the Bluebirds that 
visit the little house every Spring.
They are simply spectacular!
Birthday Love to her!

that only

It always amazes me.
Deep within the forests and woodlands
during the deep, cold Winter months that have just passed,
there is an  abundance of color and fragrance
just waiting to burst and surprise us.
How I Love May!

My Lucky Day

I'm in Milwaukee!
Enjoying a Mother's Day weekend
with my little rolling stone.
The flowers are starting to bloom, 
Lake Michigan is ice free,
the new bicycle is all tuned up,
 the city is calling!
With love and hugs.

Lucky 7

Anyone lucky enough 
to be born 
on this date, 
in such a beautiful month,
must be one
extraordinary soul.
Happy Birthday, Rich Fieldhouse!

"We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think.
When the mind is pure,
joy follows like a shadow 
that never leaves."
