Moss photos to enjoy

Like I said earlier this week. I have a bunch of photos to share. These are some moss pics I have taken over the past year.

My kids will verify this but I have this thing for moss. Whenever we are on a hike or just out and about the little patches of green grab my attention and I make everyone wait until I have looked closely or grabbed a sample. I think it has something to do with its resilience. How can something so dainty and fresh looking survive in some harsh spots?  I’ve done a good amount of research into moss and have several specimens I’ve collected. I’ve also got a nice recipe to use for spreading it around and painting it on pots and boulders and such. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy.


 

okay I know this is a lichen and not a moss but I only had one lichen photo so I've included it here because it's cool.

 

I’m looking forward to the fall rains when the moss will spring back to life.  I’ve collect many types and have learned a lot about how they grow and what you need to keep them happy so let me know in the comments if you want any advice on growing your own moss.

Thanks Duane.
It’s a common problem in damp shady areas. Try to reduce or remove any shad causing plants and keep the lawn in those areas a bit shorter….and carefully regulate the amount of water.
