Micro Worlds

I spent several long sunny hours in the sun today, turning compost and coffee grounds under the soil to prep the ground for artichokes. For the first time this year it really looked and felt like Spring. Not only did the chickens lay their first eggs, but the sky was cloudless and blue, daisies were blooming on the lawn and the cherry blossoms were pink and alive! I also noticed some smaller things starting to bloom... Lichens and mosses that looked like tiny landscapes! So I took advantage of the beautiful light and got out my camera.
