Weekly Photo Challenge: Beneath Your Feet
As I wander through the shady woods next to our house, my feet sink into spongy green mounds of countless varieties of unfamiliar plants, some of them otherworldly! A few mosquitoes rise up to greet me, but I’m able to wave them away. I imagine the millions of tiny creatures hidden among the moss-like growth that is their own mini forest.
Berries and mushrooms announce the beginning of the autumn season, though lack of normal August rains has delayed the appearance of mushrooms that seem to pop up right before your eyes!
Treasures abound beneath my feet on the forest floor – I just have to be careful not to step on them!
