A Late Earth Day Post

So yesterday was Earth Day and unfortunately my work schedule is forcing me to mix my days up. I don't have anything in particular to add which is why this post is so belated.

Here is a message from President Obama on Earth Day.

And here is what I wrote in:
This isn't restricted to Earth Day, but over the past few years I've been reestablishing our backyard to be a our own private nature reserve. The emphasis is on spring ephemerals and prairie plants. I've also encouraged beekeepers in our state to stop planting and praising invasive plants as nectar sources in favor of appropriate native alternatives to limit the impact on the environment.

I'll go into more detail with both points later on. Hopefully some of you were more productive on the day than I was.
