We have a large pine tree in our back yard
who's roots are exposed down the side of a hill
like a waterfall.
I've decided to put hens and chicks
(and maybe other succulents?)
in the nooks and crannies
the roots create.
The pine needles seem to be falling more this week.
According to this site on pine straw management,
there is a small peak around this time
(or maybe more around June?)
in the slow monthly rise that peaks in November.
