The rain and fog rolled in and gave us their great autumnal embrace. Soothing rains, plenty to fill the streams, rivers, and reservoirs, but not so much as to cause soil erosion or flooding. That’s my kind of rain. We had enough, but not too much. A Goldilocks rain, you might say. I saw a few late summer funkia flowers in a nearby garden, along with several quite sizable spider webs with their fill of rain, too. We are experiencing just the right temperatures to spur the lichens and algae into lush growth. Tree trunks around here are turning a shade of green almost as bright as the grass.
I just love the lessons of the trees. They know how to adapt their roots to the changing landscape, they stand tall, yet bend as needed, and they show us all about how to deal with the seasons with such ease in shifting from one to another. They can allow room for community, as witnessed by the communities of lichen (algae and fungus) and various critters with whom they share their space. Model citizens, the trees. What’s up in your neck of the woods?
