Our Beautiful Earth
IT'S EARTH DAY and we are celebrating the beauty and wonder that plants bring to our planet and to our everyday lives!
Imagine a world without plants…that’s hard to do because we are surrounded by plants. Just look out the window and feast your eyes on something we usually take for granted.
Near and far plants are covering our planet. Plants are food. Plants are shelter. Plants provide habitat for pollinators, birds, and wildlife. Plants and nature replenish the human spirit in ways that are still being discovered.
This Earth Day, let yourself be captivated by the pure diversity of plants in your own back yard – from tiny mosses to gigantic trees – revel in the tapestry of colors and textures with all these plants contributing to life on our planet.
Next - add more beauty to your yard…to nurture your soul and nurture all of life too! “Plant it and they will come” creates a vibrant garden bursting with life. Whether at home, your kid’s school, or your office - celebrate Earth Day by planting something!
Earth Day, Arbor Day, and “Charlie Brown”
From Wilma:  Earth Day was founded in 1970. It was begun as a day to educate about environmental issues and as a way to provide for a greener, cleaner world. April 22nd is the official Earth Day and some places around the world have celebrations all week long.
Arbor Day was begun in 1872 with the purpose of encouraging individuals and groups to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. It is officially the last Friday in April but can be held at other times depending on best tree planting weather. The Town of Weaverville is holding an Arbor Day celebration at Lake Louise Park on Friday, April 29th, at 11:00 AM.
“Peanuts” is one of my favorite cartoons and Peanuts Worldwide has a new special film “It’s the Small Things, Charlie Brown”. Listen to Peanuts new song that shows how small things can become big things. Peanuts Worldwide encourages being kind to others, ourselves, and the environment.
Cartoon by Charles Schulz
 Wilma Penland is the founder of Reems Creek Nursery and our horticultural mentor.
The Web of Life
FROM CHRIS:  What's with these webs and worms in our tree canopy?
Is this a danger to the tree? Turns out, not at all! Our native eastern tent caterpillar, a moth, is feeding on the foliage it was intended to feed on. In fact, this results in little to no damage to the tree. And most importantly, these caterpillars are a critical food source for songbirds. Caterpillars are plump, juicy, and high in fat and protein. Indeed, most songbirds will rear their young on caterpillars, not seeds or berries but on caterpillars.
So let's leave them be and find immense satisfaction in knowing that our garden, our little piece of the planet is alive and healthy, supporting our native fauna and teeming with winged beauty!
