CRAWDADS & FROGS
TELL US THE RIVER IS CLEAN

God's "lesser creatures" can tell us
so much about the health of our planet . . .

like when a river is clean and healthy,
you'll see crawdads in the shallow clear water,
and hear bullfrogs at night.
It's when we DON'T see the smallest creatures swimming
or hear the frogs serenading us at night,
we know we've got trouble,
and the river's not healthy.

But this year I'm happy to report
the crawdads are swimmin'
and the frogs are talkin'.
And the Meramec River in Missouri
is running clear, clean and true.

Safe enough for baby to play (and learn.)

  8. Great photos. And wonderful news about the improving condition of nature where you live. I'm a little jealous, because it's not the same where I live.

    Great photo's lovely composition of the dear ones and the fancy bug

    All that snow you had -now winter has come and gone and the warm rays of the sun melts the icicles away
    Smile and see the fresh sweet water come your way and give thanks to Mother Nature for restoring life once again.
