  1. When I see moss attach the tree bark, I remember the old coffee trees in my father's plantation. Most of the stems were covered by the thick moss. That's so natural.

  2. I always think moss looks like a thick green carpet, there is some growing on the bricks surrounding the raised beds. I like it there.

    1. We have a small wall around our pond and we have lovely moss on the shady side, Jo. I love it.

  3. Moss is so tactile, I can't help running my hands over it when I see it.

  4. It looks so green and lush. I find that in dry areas people wish they could only grow it. In humid climates, people often complain about it!

    1. These photos were all taken at Harlow Carr, Alain where they seem to positively encourage it as do I.

  5. Lovely pics, Sue. What is the squirrel eating? Is it Beech mast?

    1. It was in the wooded bit of Harlow Carr, Mark and the squirrel was amongst beech trees. I've zoomed other photos I took and it does look like beech mast.

  8. You have great camera, such detailed photos. I love moss but it's too warm during the summer here and it just dies.

    1. In areas that are not shady it will look as though it has died off in summer here too, Leanan but it seems to refresh itself when in is moist again

  9. Beautiful photos, I do love seeing moss. If I see a nice old stone wall covered with moss it always stops me in my tracks. The green things that like damp shade really appeal to me.
