This weekend was earth day and our neighbors arranged a clean-up on Sunday. I was shocked at the amount of trash that has been dumped just beyond my line of sight, along the railway tracks and now there is a massive pile of garbage and bags that the city was meant to pick-up yesterday. I ache all over from the lifting and piling of junk! What a good day, what nice people live near by and what weather! Sunny and warm finally. The sad part is the people who live right next to the tracks felt the need to clearcut a lot of the greenery / small trees that grow there! That gave me panic attacks and fretfulness. They seem to have left enough that hopefully when it grows in, we will still see green. They said something about allergies and it blocking sunlight, though the trees are scarcely tall enough to do that. I think some people just see that sort of growth as weeds and as messy, but they also helped with the trash cleaning, so that is good. " Hey, its earth day! Lets cut down trees! " sigh. Trying to see the bright side- it will grow back eventually.
Also, happily my tulips seem just about ready to bloom! I had planted a ton in the fall. I also bought three small pots of grape hyacinths to plant among them- lovely!
