Here we are in the dead of Seattle winter, and still I find new growth in the old growth forest of Schmitz Park.
This 200 ft. Douglas Fir supports a fallen Cedar resting on it.
And new growth abounds on shrubs nearer the ground.

I so remember the log trucks of the 1950’s when one log filled the truck. Old growth. Now chopped away.
We still see the logging trucks here but mainly on the Olympic Peninsula. I’m thankful that at least some of the forests and trees in Washington have been preserved. Schmitz Park is in the middle of West Seattle but someone had the foresight years ago to see that it was protected. We have a few parks like that in the city.
So nice to see the growth in the dead of winter. The growth picture reminds me that even when we feel like we’re done growing, there is always something that teaches us we’re never done growing.
It’s true. Growth happens even in the dead of winter. Thank you. 🙂
