On a winter walk.

I was out for a rather wintry walk recently when I spotted this old tree stump at the base of a hedge. In the spring and summer it is probably hidden by other plants but now as the surrounding plants have died back it is visible. As the top of the stump is decaying, there must be enough rotted debris and fallen leaf material from the surrounding plants to support the growth of this mini moss and foxglove garden on the top.

It seems a good example of recycling, the tree decaying and now supporting other plant life. I will try to remember to have a look during the summer and see the foxgloves in flower.
