One gardener's observations, discoveries and random thoughts whilst simultaneously worshipping and dallying in a Cape Cod garden. "A garden," said Ralph Waldo Emerson, "is like those pernicious machineries which catch a man's coatskirt or his hand, and draw in his arm, his leg and his whole body to irresistable destruction."

Hopefully, you already know that this evening is Earth Hour.   At approximately 8:30 p.m. – your local time – we are asked to turn off all lights and unnecessary household appliances.   It’s already happened in a great many places around the globe and it’ll be our turn later on this evening.  The whole movement is symbolic of what we can accomplish when we work together toward a common goal…such as finding ways to preserve and protect our wonderful little, “mostly harmless” home planet.

Won’t you join us?   You can read more about the whole business and make a lantern for your blog/Facebook, etc. (there’s even an app – sorry Patrick – to turn off the “lights” on your Twitter account for the hour), by following this little link here.

FYI: My pal Purrypants and I have been exploring the garden

this chilly week and will have plenty of surprises to share with you,

after the lights come back on tonight!

  1. I hadn’t heard of Earth Hour until it had just happened. I’d have happily joined in. It was heartening to see some big downtown corporate building join in. I was reading somewhere that talking about global climate change is now so passe–so sad that something to important can be subject to fads like that. Excuse me? Something so critical as that needs to be talked about until people take real action to do what they can. I’m glad you kept the conversation going.
