The warm morning air carries the scent of the moss and the rich humus mingled with the stones in the creek. Erupting through the moss and scattered leaves are the tiny flowers that showcase the Appalachian Spring. When you pull back the humus and examine the roots it’s obvious that the network of roots are more complex than the circuit board of any supercomputer. It’s all connected with a mat of fine filaments called mycelium. The entire forest is a living information system. I’ve always appreciated the beauty of the mountains and the forest but wasn’t until recently that I began to understand that the smaller plants that cover it all serve purposes beyond the need for pleasant human experience. After the ages since Adam was cast from the garden of Eden mankind is just now beginning to rediscover the secrets that he was most likely programmed with at his conception. Even the humble little flowers like the Dutchman’s Breeches in tonight’s feature image are constantly collecting and transmitting data through the network. Perhaps because they’re in full growth before the majority of the trees awaken they’re transmitting information about the soil conditions and weather to the trees. I have noticed that the maple family doesn’t open their buds until the Dutchman’s Breeches bloom. It’s the natural calendar in action. One that marks God’s seasons and they tell me that it’s time to remove the snow blade from my tractor and attach the mowing deck. I can put my heavy jackets away get ready for the grand awakening that’s soon to come.
