Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, everyone! My "Small Measures with Ashley" post is up on Design Sponge. In recognition of the holiday, I've listed 25 of my favorite ways of enjoying the splendor of our planet.

We've been humming along chez English, planting new blueberry bushes and blackberry canes, watching the peas tendril up the trellis, putting up hanging baskets with strawberry plants, messing around with lemon verbena in baking, noshing on Georgia strawberries, listening to the glorious sound of rain falling, eating outdoor brunch with friends, and generally enjoying all that the season offers.

We're having friends over for dinner tomorrow evening, and then I plan to get busy in the yard and garden on Sunday while my mom hangs with Huxley.

Wherever you go, whatever you do this weekend, may it be grand!

I loved your 25 ways to enjoy the Earth on Earth Day. Extra kudos for tree-hugging at a young age.
I recently found a picture of me at 5 in my grandparents lush garden, all google-eyed and awed. It made me smile to remember how it all begins.
