This spring, so far at least, hasn't been a colourful one. Everything is very slow 'to show'.
So when I happened upon this mustard coloured moss the other day
it stuck out like a sore thumb....a pretty sore thumb!
Especially with it contrasting with the pale gray lichen,
they worked very well together I thought.
Then I came upon this tree stump that was serving as a 'nursing log'....providing a good
environment to not only the moss but also numerous other plants and insects.
Even on our small property we try to 'give back' to nature by leaving small fallen trees behind
to rot and nourish the environment.
