it's getting a bit greener

In the past couple weeks we've had a couple mild rain-storms pass over -- a bit unusual for a usually dry, dry, dry California.

And darn-it...   I'm going to have to go back and re-shoot this with my camera on the tripod so I can stop the lens down for some increased depth-of-field -- I usually like the soft look, but I think this shot would benefit from more sharply focused detail.

The moss and lichen and ferns and other greenery -- all enjoying the moisture.

This spectacular nature show is along the Fairfax-To-Bolinas Road.   I get to see it often on my little trips up on Mt. Tamalpais.

The ferns have perked up -- they are indeed very much alive...
(((as Hyacinth Bucket would say; "They are a very ancient civilization".)))

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, DONALD!!!!!!

Love these pictures. Looks like you've got some great moss here, as well as the ferns. I'd take moss over a manicured lawn any day o' the week.

All the best to kitty,
SP
