The prolific rains, from the El Niño effect, have provided much commentary about folks feeling as if they might be “growing moss”. Well, for me, it’s partially true, as I’ve looked at the effects it has rendered on certain woodland-type areas in my yard. The perfect degree of shade and moisture have created an abundance of the lovely, velvety textured growth.
While in the world of botanicals, they are classified as bryophytes, and there are about 12,000 species, for simplicity sake, I’ll just zero in on the type I’m seeing spreading and creating lovely surfaces in my gardens. Most people are familiar with seeing this in a sheet variety, as it can be excavated and used in a multitude of ways.
If you love are a fan of green, an outdoor container can become it’s own little eco-system with the addition of a moss covering.
I love this application for the Athenaeum Hotel in London. What a great high rise alternative if planting trees may be prohibitive.
I want this interior tablescape! So interesting and yet so simple. A glass top makes for no fuss, no muss.
And to think it all began, here:
What are your favorite ways to use moss? Please do share!
