So now the question is - who will taste the first ripe strawberry?

The Gull or Me?  http://www.redgage.com/photos/gramabarb/gull-and-me.html

Or maybe our friendly crow?

Sad About All Oil Spills - A Tribute to Water

Isn't it sad and shameful that we don't take care of our home (earth) better?

Look how we are attracted to water by reflecting on our precious resource as you look at these photographs.

I am featuring this photo first because it sets the theme as to how we should all feel

Worrying for Water by Eahauser

We love boating - think what a nightmare it would be if the water near you was cover with death-dealing oil?
In the Archipelago by irenemaria

Fun events are often held on the water.  What would this picture look like if the water was covered in oil?
Dragon Boat Races by brianne

A beautiful scene of the beach - would you sit there if there were oil covered waterfowl on the beach?
Beach by Night by irenemaria

Coffee at the Lake by AuriFin

Isn't if wonderful to see a clean beach of pebbles and rocks?
At the Ocean by AuriFin

Thank you for visiting.  Thank you for caring.
