As I walked through a West Michigan forest today, I found the bottom of this tree covered in a vibrant green moss. The color reminded me of emeralds as it seemed to glow clinging to the trunk of the tree. Normally this far into January in West Michigan, the ground would be covered with snow. But with temperatures reaching well into the 50′s, the surrounding carpet of leaves displayed a nice backdrop for the vibrant green.
