Nature Recycling by Arte-de-Junqueiro Nature Recycling by Arte-de-Junqueiro
Nature often recycles - fallen leaves become mulch for new growths in the spring. We have had some very damaging storms  in the Sintra area during the last few winters... Now shattered trees are being used by climbing plants and crevices in rocks have sufficient debris (and mulch) to support the growth of plants... No matter what - nature moves on!!!

I give this inspiring shot to our dear friend :iconjocelyner: for her Birthday... Happy Birthday Jocelyne!!! :tighthug:

There is a saying here: "Nature retakes its rights." And it is so true!  When a paved road is abandoned, a few years later, the pavement has disappeared, replaced by bush, then trees quite fast. It is amaing!
Very beautiful picture with different plants and moss!  :heart:
Thank you kindly for this superb birthday gift and for your wishes, dear Mel, I truly appreciate it!  :tighthug:

Your ID and the thumb are now on my profile page and on the right side of my journal:  jocelyner.deviantart.com/journ…

Wonderful capture for Jocelyne
Oh lots of that recycling going on over here too
overtime we get high winds many old trees fall in the forest
often blocking the paths until the one who maintain chop them up :nod:

In many countries - when there has been such a storm ALL the folks take to the woods - free fuel for the fire and wood-burner!! ;-)
