A Purple Anemone for Earth Day

Earth Day is most definitely not every day, as Americans have retained a steady insistence on the right to find cheap and disposable pleasures at the expense of our planet’s ecological integrity. Earth Day is one of the few occasions when large numbers of Americans stop to think for even a moment about the importance of our relationship with the natural world. Today, I’ll mark that occasion with a photograph of a small gain for non-human life in my own yard. It’s an anemone, blooming today underneath the leaves of a growing ornamental onion, where last year there was only a patch of grass to mow.
