    What an interesting find!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Anne. Our forests are damp enough to host lots of moss and lichen. When a trail follows a stream, there is always lots of it to see. A welcome green at this time of year. 🙂

    This time of year, I suspect you northerners will take your green where you can find it.

  3. John says:

    The moss seems to be very happy, Eliza. They are soft to the touch. ☺️

    Hi Eliza. You can always rely on moss for a photo opportunity!

  5. I love moss… never enough of it in my garden though …

  6. Nice. We have a concrete ledge running along one side of our barn, and there are small pieces of moss all along the ledge. The bright green pops. 🙂

    Depending on one’s perspective, they could also be moss mountains.

  8. Jim R says:

    Was there a rolling stone nearby?

  9. Treah Pichette says:

    So much life in there! I love using these when making my yearly terrarium for winter. Don’t worry….I return them in the spring! 😉

  10. Dale says:

    I was thinking, to a little bug, these are mountains! Love the pop of green.

  11. Yes, yes! I wonder what little dwelling lies beneath.

  12. You have made me miss moss. There must be some in a swamp here somewhere. Amazing how green it looks. Hobbit housing, I think?

  13. We have moss here, but not like the northern woods.

    It’s like a whole other mini world! Lovely capture Eliza 💖

  15. Moss turrets or moss turds? 😊

  16. Kris P says:

    I didn’t realize that moss was so hardy! That bright green looks all the more wonderful against an icy backdrop.

  17. Nice to see some green right now!

    Interesting shot, Eliza. Is moss a sign of moisture, or is Spring on its way?

  20. Stumped! Nice find, Eliza!

  21. Looks like a few different kinds of moss with different textures and shades of green. So much fodder for the imagination, great fairy habitat. 🙂
