I spent a little bit of time this morning exploring the living world in my backyard.
Big White Oak-such a majestic tree. I'm so happy to have this in my backyard
Salomon Seal, or maybe its False Salomon's Seal, I've misplaced my field guide
Blackcap berries-yum, I probably won't get to these before another creature does.
White Mulberry, the leaves are like little mittens
Virginia Creeper makes a lush carpet on the forest floor
Mr. Earthworm churning fallen leaves into nourishing soil
Sassafras, one of my favorites, so happy to find this
Hickory and Oak will be competing for nourishment and sunlight
A snail doing what snails do
