Walking among the redwoods

Plants growing on a fallen redwood
Hanging garden

A fallen redwood becomes the substrate for new growth: moss, fern, redwood sorrel, trees.


 

A redwood's root reaches for the ground
Reaching for the ground

A young redwood growing on the root end of the trunk of a fallen one has stretched its root like an arm to reach the ground.

My awed silence pays homage to nature’s resilience.
