Happy Earth Day!

Embothrium coccineum, originally uploaded by gingershana.

This is one of our Chilean Fire Trees (Embothrium coccineum) happily putting out new leaves. We repotted a couple of them this year, and they are growing like crazy.

For Earth Day this year, we are having a seed/seedling exchange at work. Yesterday evening I potted up (in yogurt cups) seven divisions of chives and six batches of daisy seedlings. I'm sure the people on the bus next to me were wondering why I smelled like onions at 6:15 in the morning!

Take a little time today to thank Mother Earth for all she gives you, and if you are so inclined, maybe do a little something to help her out.
