I usually don't post several shots of the same thing but these stairs were so interesting. Many different types of plants, mushrooms, fungus, moss and several small trees. Every step was different. I spent over and hour taking photos. Not to mention a few slugs and snails.

    A fabulous entry, Joe. Nature has already planted a garden to cover and beautify the manmade stairs. I guess she just doesn't like what our lifestyles do to her landscaping. :-)
