Mysterious bit n’ bobs

This is an overflow post, since there were a few things that I wanted to mention in the other post, but counting up to more than 3 things seemed too scattered, so here we are. In captioned pictures:

Isn’t that weird? We arrived after a few weeks away and found piles of this. I thought, BEAR POOP! But no, it looked more like peat moss close up.
