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.

Morning dew

Dew on parsley flower head
Dew on a spiderweb on a parsley flower head

A spider spun its web on a parsley flower head.
Dewdrops like tiny pearls.
It happened outside my window.
