    We don’t usually do anything special but I did hear that we’ll be going around the lake collecting garbage now that our snow is slowly disappearing at long last.

    My family does a spring cleanup in our neighbourhood every year. It’s amazing what accumulates over the winter.

    We were going to celebrate Earth Day by raking and getting our yard ready for planting but it snowed! We’ll likely watch National Geographic and Friendly Planet videos instead now.
