Back on that Saturday hike through the forest, I found a whole lot more than flowers. There's a saying that most people know. "Can't see the forest for the trees", but I think I suffer from the opposite affliction. I can't see the trees for the forest. My eyes are constantly scanning the forest for little pops of color or form.
From grapevines taking up a strangling position to fuzzy little seeds, it all grabs my attention.
Even flies look better sitting on a bright green leaf in the under story of my favorite forest.
Does anybody else remember popping these little seed pods as a kid, or was I just strange?
