Long Live Moss!
Sorry I've been remiss about posting recently. I blame the long, cold, wet winter / early spring. (I may have proclaimed winter dead back in February, but it came back with a vengeance in March.)
Anyway, I have a backlog of photos I've been wanting to post, including these shots of moss in its sporophyte phase.
I really like moss. A lot. I wish I had more of it. It's soft. It's carefree. It's tougher than it looks, but generally non-aggressive (at least in my experience). And you never need to mow it! 😃
If you're willing to get down on your knees and go up close and personal with the moss, you'll find it has a lot of beauty, particularly in late winter (in Tennessee anyway).
Flashback -- I sang the praises of moss in this March, 2015 post! I've changed my tune on a lot of plants over the years, but my fondness for moss has only grown stronger.
