Stump Life

A series (in comments) from one of my favorite personal landmarks, a huge weather-worn stump, a reminder of the old growth forest which existed before much of Wisconsin’s forests were clear-cut to supply a fast-growing America the lumber it demanded at the turn of the 19th century. For those interested, some amazing photos of those unenlightened times may be seen here: www.wisconsinhistory.org/Content.aspx?dsNav=Ntk:All|Lumbe…

In any event, the mosses now provide a year round miniature landscape within the confines of this ancient giant, accented by different highlights depending on the season. Here, fallen leaves provide a ground cover just as they do everywhere.
