A waste of good moss

You know I love moss, right? I post about it a few times every year -- so soft, green, lush. Probably the main reason that I like it so much is you really have to look at it closely in order to appreciate it...


...and I'm a big fan of getting up close to everything in the garden. This moss is not in the garden though, and it isn't long for this world.

This moss is growing on some logs...


...logs destined for the fireplace. I normally wouldn't burn green (unseasoned) wood, but the cold temps recently leave me no choice.

When I cut this locust tree at the end of the summer it had some mossy parts that dried up, but as mosses do, they rehydrated and revived after the cooler (cold!) wetter weather arrived.


So into the fire they go. What a shame.


This reminds me though: February is a great month for moss hunting around here!

Moss looks like a micro forest, and the forest will be set on fire!

It's own little tiny world. What a magical planet we inhabit!

I also adore moss, however it's all around me this time of year...perhaps I should send your box-o-moss?

Can you peel the mossy bark off the logs and enjoy it indoors for a while?!

Loree: That would be a nice package to receive, although I wonder how many of them would actually survive the hot part of the year or the coldest weather? (I'm not educated on the hardiness ratings of mosses)
