Juniper

The dispersal of juniper seeds is effected by the plum and cherry plan of hiring birds at the cost of their board, and thus obtaining the use of a pair of extra good wings.

Overgrown

This spot is one of my favorites on the trail when I ride. It is obviously overgrown but it is teaming with life. There’s a towhee family in here, wrens, Brown thrashers who alarm everytime a bike comes by (I imagine they don’t get a lot of rest when folks are getting off work). I’ve seen a great blue heron in here, goldfinch, heard the flickers tonight and some downy woodpeckers... man I do love a shrubby and overgrown edge.

... The infinite Tao is something which you can neither escape by flight nor catch by pursuit; there is no coming toward it or going away from it; it IS and you are it. So become what you are.

Hydrangea Bud

There is much potential and possibility in a small bud.

Look closely at the trees, at the shrubs, at life...

It's all there waiting for the conditions to be right to burst forth!
