The Beautiful Creatures Who Put Up With Us

This poplar is inspiring. It’s hard to say which is more beautiful, her young bark or her old bark.

To be young and old at the same time, that’s not a human trick! This spruce pulls it off, though, too.

A bit everything at once, really! But, hey, if you want strange, bizarre living things, what about grassy hen.

Wild! Or apricots. Who thought of that?

See, that’s the thing about the anthropocene. It’s silly. These creatures are amazing. They’re not ordinary in any way. I mean, really, snail tracks on a row cover? Who would have thought of that?

I think we give thought more credit than it deserves.
