Show ’em who’s moss!

My parents’ front yard in Vancouver was so shady that a quarter of it wasn’t grass but moss. It was the softest thing ever, and my sis and I would choose to sit in the shade just to sit on the moss instead of the prickly grass. And don’t get me (or, really, the Spousal Unit and Kid1) started on the useless monoculture that is North American lawns. LOL!

Mosses are fascinating plants. If you want to learn more about them, head to this Encyclopedia Britannica page. If you just want to see some pretty pictures, stay right here and scroll down! 😄

Don’t these look like Mother Nature’s ikebana arrangements?

Wishing you a nice weekend filled with beauty!
