Leaf Litter

    Most of our deciduous trees in the Robson Valley are now bare and their branches stand naked.  The leaves that sustained them through the summer have fallen to the ground.  The nutrients that the leaves  contain will be broken down my insects, bacteria, and fungus, and will be freed up to be used again by other plants or the very trees from which they fell.
    The natural world we love and depend on could not exist if it didn’t recycle everything.

  1. The folks who fight their leaves in their yards just don't know what they are missing. :)
