Happy Spring Petra! I love this time of year! Everything seems to come alive.

I'm sorry to say that I totally forgot it was Earth Hour yesterday. I really can do better, for our planet's sake. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos.

Love, K. :)

Happy Spring, Petra! I don't know how it is today where you live, but we got hit with a nor'easter last night, so it's been VERY cold with some snow flurries. I'm not complaining though because you know me....I love the cold - ha!

Gorgeous photographs from around the world honoring Earth Hour. I scrolled through your photo selection and looked at each one very carefully. They are all so beautiful!

Oh, and loved the videos you selected as well. Especially the one by Marvin Gaye, love that song!

Have a great rest of your day, dear friend. Hope all is well with your father.
