Notice how the stem is attached to the edge of the cap instead of the centre! Also this little mushroom is grown out of a Douglas Fir cone. What's not to love? They're so tiny they're easy to overlook. But if you slow down to start taking in the world of the small the world expands....

    1)Good talk with someone I love. Those are always special.
    2)Checked off all my "necessary for life" errands.
    3)Finally got around to hanging some nature prints I have. I've missed seeing them. It's like getting to experience them as if they're new to me, all over again.

    Giving things time is the key management activity we do on our

    But while we can't beat time we can optimize some circumstances.

    One example: leaving fallen* trees in place helps kickstart natural decaying processes. This gives room for species that aren't found in a pure production growth.

    *some with help 😉🌲🌳

    It's interesting to see how in just a couple of years species diversity has significantly grown with a handful of these basic changes in management.

    Large tree that blew over in a storm in 2022. It's there to stay.
    Root trunk and main trunk of a large pine that fell during a 2021 winter storm. It's still very dry so doesn't have a lot of stuff growing in it. The outside is already home to some stuff
    Old log, probably from the 2010 partial clearcut before we owned the land. Among other things there's a bunch of woody fungi growing on it.

    Another sign of an improving ecosystem: tasty !

    Just found about a dozen of these puffballs (Lycoperdon perlatum). Very common but somehow the larger ones are not often in an edible state.
