In Celebration of the Sun


In honor of the 540th birthday celebration of Nicolaus Copernicus, celebrate a moment in the sun today. Ironically, yesterday’s post was about the importance of natural light in our lives.  And we can’t forget how critical sunlight is when planting our exterior landscapes. 

So why celebrate another day in the sun? Copernicus, an astronomer of his time, discovered with his naked eye (no fancy telescopes or technology) that “the sun was the true center around which everything else revolved.”

 The sad part of the story is, like most discoveries ahead of its time, Copernicus’ findings were condemned while he was alive. But in Copernicus’ own words, “At rest, however, in the middle of everything is the sun.”
