    Happy Earth Day to you as well, Tyler. Thanks for sharing your creative spark out into a world that so needs all the light we can give.

    • Thank you, Rod! I celebrated Earth Day by removing two invasive plant species from the along the trails of an Audubon Society Nature Center. If I keep banging my head against a tree, there’s bound to be more sparks 🙂 Hope you are having a good weekend!

      • Rod Terry says:

        Every little spark helps to light the world. Thank you from my heart and soul for adding yours! 🙂

      • Thank you, Rod! I too would like to say how blessed I feel to know caring spirits like yourself. May we continue to share the company of Mother Nature and infuse her wisdom through our words and actions in the community around us. Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday!

    It appears I misspoke about Yo Mama Earth, for I thought her day Saturday but I find now it’s Monday (and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and Friday and Saturday)! Keep it real and feel the love of the sun if you can get some! Cheers, Tyler 🙂

  5. Bee-you-tee-ful!!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing – and for checking out my blog! Happy Earth Day!

    great picture. would love to have it as a poster.

    • Thank you! I appreciate your kind words. The beautiful botanical scenery in my photograph is located at the Ross Creek Cedars of NW Montana. Never thought of printing it as a poster but it imagine it would look even more awe-inspiring enlarged. I hope you are having a great day 🙂

  7. I love this photo and the name of your blog. Thanks for reading and liking my post ‘Chameleon visions’.

    • Thank you and you are very welcome! I am really enjoying your poetry/photography blog. Keep up the inspired work! Hope you had a great day 🙂

    On the first Earth Day in 1970, my fifth grade class planted a garden, an event I write about in my forthcoming book, A Bushel’s Worth: An Ecobiography, from Torrey House Press. How nice to meet a kindred Earth Day spirit. Thank you for remembering the Day!

    • Always a pleasure to meet a fellow kindred spirt of this earth! Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and for sharing your personal story. You must be very proud getting your book published. I’ve self-published one book of poetry and photographs (“Nostalgia, Naturally,” Authorhouse, 2007), but never really tried submitting my work to publishers. I like having more control over my vision. Plus, there’s no time like the present to fulfill your dreams! I’ll look for your book on Amazon, since the title has piqued my curiosity.

    I was going to follow you by email but you don’t have your “Follow Me” button up.

    • Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking my photo! I just added the “Follow Me” button today. You’ll have to forgive me. I’m still learning about all the bells and whistles on WordPress. Hope you are having a relaxing weekend my friend! Keep up the great work on your blog!
      Tyler 🙂

    There’s no need for forgiveness, you did nothing wrong. However, I’m happy you got the button in place…now I will try it. Thank you for your compliment and hope your weekend is more exciting and restful than you plan.

    Small world, man! I live in Billings right now but I used to live in both Ashland, Or and Portland, and my parents actually went to school in Corvallis. We’re heading out to Mill Creek near Sheridan, MT next week to do a little gold prospecting. Thanks for your recent like on one of my posts! I’ll defnitely stay tuned in to yours.

    • Awesome! It’s always a pleasure to meet someone who’s seen and lived in the same country of Montana and Oregon. I grew up in Helena, MT and went to college in Missoula, MT. I’ve spent the last 5 years living in Oregon – 1 year in Portland, 4 years in Coos Bay and now currently living in Corvallis – so I’ve seen the very urban and rural sides of the landscape. The OSU campus is amazing. Glad to live in a college town again. Didn’t realize how much I missed it. I look forward to checking out more of your blog as well. Appreciate you stopping by…it makes my world feel a little smaller and more connected now 🙂

  12. Great nature post, i liked it! Thank you for liking my “fairy” post!

    This is beautiful. I stopped by after you liked my Redwood post. Have a great Week, dixie

    • Thank you, Dixie! Keep up the inspired work on your blog. Your Redwood photos are amazing! Hope you have a wonderful week as well, my friend 🙂

  14. Happy every day to you. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post. Beautiful photo’s and post subjects.

    • Thank you, Jo! You have such a wonderful and inspiring blog! I am especially drawn to your beautiful photographs of your retrievers and horses. I love pets and own two cats, two dogs and one rooster. Our oldest dog is 11 years and her name is Raven. She is a black, flat-coat retriever (BTW, retrievers are the best dogs ever!). Our other dog is a 4 year-old Beagle-Corgie mix and her name is Izzy. Never a dull moment for us pet owners. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who owns who 😉 Hope you have a relaxing weekend, my friend, and I look forward to following your blog!
      Tyler 🙂
