There hasn't been much I've been able to do in the garden these past few months, so it seemed a good time to create a moss garden. It's an on-going project that only started in December, and it's free. It's amazing what you can find in your own neighborhood when you start looking. I can't believe the variety of mosses, just within walking distance from my house.
The site for my moss garden is under a small oak tree in an area of my garden that nothing else has done well in because the soil is dense and it holds water when it rains.
I keep a small plastic bag with me on my walks, and sometimes carry a small spoon to scoop it up. I can't believe I've found so much of it in just a few short months.
I've had a lifelong fascination with mosses. I love their color and softness, and I love the miniature world they live in.
