Exhalation of moss, mycelium, black mould; wafted savor of a thousand earthly growths, damp, clinging, redolent; aroma of mighty roots, of invisible spawn and seed—all the vast stirring of the earth’s desire. ~Virginia Garland
As I looked outside at the locust in the yard, I realised how much beauty was still within it and decided to not just chronicle its demise, but capture it for later. The bark, the curling pieces of wood, and the mosses are a masterpiece of creation. I do admit, however, that some of these photos are better when seen from a different angle. However, blogspot does not always allow the blogger to tweak photos to the right presentation. Alas, may you enjoy anyway!
Kazul has decided to retire to the Mountains of Morning and so Kris is taking over for the King of Dragons. We'll miss the work Kazul has done, but she does have several grandchildren now and needs to spend time with them. We have replaced the family photo with just Moses, but as he is a major part of the family, it should suffice!
