I don’t know what it is about moss, but I just love it. Particularly the moss that’s growing on and around my mother’s fountain. If you look closely there’s even moss growing out of the little girl’s basket – so beautiful!

Just found you through my Twitter feed–love your moss post. I am a moss fan too, you can read about my nascent moss garden (and other NW native plant activities) on my blog: Athistleinmysensitivearea.wordpress.com I hope you visit! Best, Calvin
Calvin – I absolutely adore your blog (and the NAME of your blog – LOVE IT!). Thanks so much for stopping by!!
For me… is it the touch or the smell that is so intriguing?
I love the mossy look concrete or natural stone walls can get. Sometimes I tell my clients to use yogurt to start up some moss where they want it. We do creative landscaping and I hope we get some clients that like moss the way we do so we can do some jobs and post some photos. I love your images here.
I love moss too! People spend so much time and energy trying to get rid of it, so I ask them to dig it up and bring it over to my house. : ) Seattle is the land of moss after all.
Mosses are so magical, aren’t they? Kids sure love their mini-world feeling. I love them too and really love lichens like the ones on the statuary…all those colors, all that life. Wow.
I couldn’t agree more, Sharon! Moss & lichens are just begging for a child’s imagination, aren’t they? No doubt you’ve created many, many enchanting ‘fairy worlds’ using them!
Great piece and photos Rebecca, mosses do thrive in winter and early spring, and as summer heats up they may retreat, but give them a little care with some extra water and they’ll hang around all year!
Thanks David – you should know, right? Love your site, btw. Everything anyone could ever want to know about mosses with to do for photos to boot! Thanks for stopping by!
Lovely! I’m very fond of moss too, and tend to take it for granted here in the winter. As we’re heading into spring though, I expect it won’t be around for much longer this season. Good to appreciate it while it’s still here.
I agree – appreciate it while its around! With California’s dry, dry summers it’ll be gone soon enough!
