HAPPY EARTH DAY

You don't have to tour the 7,107 islands- the Philippines to appreciate the natural marvels of our earth, but it helps.

You don't have to snorkel the warm waters of Jamaica to be impressed with the hidden beauty of our planet's seas, but it helps.

You don't have to view the Rockies, experience the rock of Gibraltar, or gaze at Mount Fuji to realize how awe-inspiring are the vistas of our globe, but it helps.

Experiencing firsthand the majesty of the mountains and the glory of the oceans can leave us breathless as we ponder how spectacular our big blue marble really is.



Today is Earth Day, a commemoration of our global home and a reminder of our responsibility to be careful stewards of this orb. In connection, this week's FSO theme is "Honoring Trees" by GingerV.

good to see you back with us. question? does the sugar apple bear fruit? is it edible? or make jams?

Thanks, Redlan, I'd never heard of sugar apples before. Strange-looking fruit! What do they taste like?
