Get down low…and see the mysteries that may be in your mulch and layer of leaf liter under the trees..
The ground is wet and I’m careful where I walk, so not to, literally, slip on the slopes. The mountain above my garden commands attention, frosted in snow or shrouded with cloud, ever changing now. But, today,…I’m looking down.
Looking down, though, to watch my step, I see mostly mulch covering the paths and beds. The colors of the Fall garden have melted into it and the muted tones of pine green, the grey-green of the manzanita and the dull green of the deerbrush have the chance to distinguish themselves.
Getting down low reveals more than just mulch. Some objects I know, some not, some lucky to see, some, like the Pretty face, I look forward to see. All are small mysteries. And wonders.
