Walking around Harvey Gap Lake a couple of weekends ago I picked up a bunch of shells along the upper trail. I used to pick up the same kinds of shells when I was a little girl, forever collecting little things in my pockets. Not much has changed since then! I soaked them for awhile to loosen the dirt that had found its way inside.
I was cleaning them out today when I found a plant growing out of one of them. (scroll down)
A very tiny plant...
I love tiny things! I can't stop looking at the tiny plant and seeing a whole Pacific Northwest island; an ecosystem in and of itself. To be sitting in the shade of one of those mighty trees, relaxing to the sound of the surf. If I had a tiny little ear I could hold the shell up to it and hear the ocean. ;)
