I know Spring is a bad time for my long forgotten winter blogpost and pics. But I'll be brief.
If there's one type of plant (Angiosperms vs Bryophytes? I'll leave someone better informed to fight it out) that looks amazing in the depths of winter, it's moss. I know very little about them, but I love them at this time of year. They seem so vibrant and bursting with life at a time when everything else has gone a bit quiet and underground. So I have a bit of respect for them. For the kid in me, I pretend these mounds of tiny organisms are from a Lilliputian planet and and that I play out tiny adventures around them. But to the designer in me, there's nothing more elegant than the smokey, grey-greens and olive greens of moss, and the dusting of fine dew that makes the colours glisten. So take a closer look at the mini landscape growing on the brick wall in front of my house....
