For years,a few neighbors and I have been working on cleaning out the bank of the water behind TheGreatWall.
This past spring,I enlisted help to do a major clean-up.,on the bank behind TheGreatWall.
The bank was replanted with Walter’s Viburnum,
Simpson’s Stopper Myrcianthes fragrans,
Jamaica Caper Capparis cynophallophora.
Along with a Beauty Berry Allicarpa americana,and a Sweetgum tree,…and a native Cassava Manihot escuenta,….which decided to join in…Spread by the birds I think…the objective was to return the bank and the water to as original as I could.
So,imagine my surprise to find these….
Egg casings from an Apple Snail…
I found these shells on the bank of the water…
After all the hard work,now it all seems worth it.
To see nature return to it’s beginnings.
To see creatures return.
Now,if just everyone could see things the way they should be…..
