Return to cinder

12 Apr

Address unknown, I believe there was a garage here in the early 1960s before they closed this road due to the new trans Canada highway.

These blocks have become comfy protective homes for a few plant.

Moss grows fat on and in  non-rolling stones

This is slightly off subject though this tiny intruder appeared to inch worm his way into my car while I was enjoying the mossy cinders. You may need to click the photo to see him well.

I watched this little stowaway travel round & round for 15 minutes before I stopped the car at home, he was rather dazed and tired by the time I helped him off and into his new surroundings, but like the moss, plants and cinder blocks discovered in their journeys, home is where you find yourself, it happens true to nature.

    Very good post as usual, 1left. I love the line “moss grows fat on and in non-rolling stones”. Very poetic. It seems all is well in the Canadian north . . . even for the inch worms. 🙂

      Thanks Jeremy, It happens without effort, the river energy flows and we play in this constant freshness, we are truly well.

    Love that moss. I love those little mini gardens created by the cinder blocks. And the poor little inch worm – glad he found a new home. I’ll bet he’s just as content as can be now. 🙂

      It was delightful to see those green leaves in amongst the moss, it really appeared a gardener must have planted them. We normally have a number of inch worms in the yard so I suspect he is going to stick around.
      –mobius –The Dryad’s saddle mushroom photo on your post tonight was amazing.
