Aurea Arbor

Mother Nature often surprises us with her unpredictability. During my trip to the interior of Iceland, I came across a fascinating phenomenon between volcanic craters. Between the rather barren vegetation and the volcanic sand, vast areas of new life, or moss, are growing in what, from a bird’s-eye view, looks like a new birth.

This inconspicuous moss, usually considered a secondary plant, appears to be an incredibly important part of the ecosystem in this harsh and wild terrain. Able to survive in conditions where other plants cannot, it plays a key role in the process of ecological succession, helping to transform barren volcanic lands into vibrant and diverse ecosystems.

This phenomenon, akin to the resurrection of dead places, reminds us that nature has an extraordinary capacity to regenerate and come back to life even under the most difficult conditions. At the same time, it is a reminder to us humans of our responsibility to protect nature and maintain the ecological balance of our planet.
