it's not easy being green

Capers Market held a mini event in their parking lot in celebration of Earth Day, which is coming up on April 22 (mark your calendars!). The event promoted ways to preserve water and energy, how to support local farmers and raised awareness for endangered species and educated the public about our impact on Mother Earth. Picked up a few things and quickly breezed by Fashion High's tent where they were having a Clothes Line Sale. Then, we strolled along Robson, breezed in and out of stores and basically enjoyed the sunshine before it leaves tonight. Which means it's going to rain tomorrow for the Sun Run. Sigh. There goes my plan to walk the Sun Run and get a nice glowing tan. Now, I'm going to have to pack an umbrella and wear layers. Sucks.

The marmot is one of the endangered species that needs to be protected. Incidentally, it's also one of the 2010 Olympic mascots, named Mukmuk.

A large plastic cherry blossom where people can scribble their ode to the cherry blossom in Haiku or other poetic forms. This one reads, "Cherry blossoms make the world cherriful." Cute.
