The rainforest principle is at work at Radnor Lake. There are many fallen, decomposing tree trunks that provide nutrients for mushrooms, funguses, insects and animals. In many cases they supply beauty for the eye as well as examples of nature’s innate order and grand design. I had never heard the term ‘nurse log’ until Plant Expert Deer referred to this log as such. I’m not blaming the nurse log for nurturing the poison ivy growing all around it. Evil must be represented as part of the grand design scheme. Now, where’s that Round-up?
