The Worm On The Roof
This morning, I had to prune some large branches of a climbing hydrangea off the roof of my barn. The hydrangea is beautiful, and I am leaving the parts of it that hang on the external walls of the barn, but on the roof, the branches were collecting leaf litter, decomposing into a thin layer of soil, where other plants could take root.
In the soil, under the branches, I found earthworms. How did they get there?
