    What a perfect description, Eliza!
    Love this!

  2. Anne says:

    Having just been outdoors in the dark and looked up at the stars before the sun rises, I think your description is most apt!

  3. I love moss, and my bonsai do too. It keeps their soil from drying out…

  4. “Galaxies” is an interesting choice of words. It’s a reminder of “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….”

    I came across some moss at the Solo tract, and when I looked at the macro image of them, they did indeed look star-like. I had no idea.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Macro photography really opens us to a whole new world. I love it and esp. enjoy seeing shots by photographers with better equipment than mine.

  6. A fitting description. The universe repeats it patterns everywhere, large and small. Love how bright the green is.

  7. Alice says:

    Sparkly green and soft….and snow!

  8. Vertical planting at its very natural best. 🙂

  9. Pepper says:

    Perfect title and lovely image for Wordless Wednesday. 😊

  10. Perfect title! How they sparkle.

  11. Pretty green with the bark constellations.

  12. Tina says:

    Love the bits of fuzzy green with the rough-textured bark; it’s a nice combination of emerging life with stable foundation. Nice shot!

  13. It does seem like that, such intricate structures.

  14. Kris P says:

    Clever title. I’ve never seen moss climb trees but then moss is relatively uncommon here – except this year.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Kris. We have many different types here growing on all sorts of surfaces. They do require a far amount of moisture, so they are probably having a good year given all the rain you’ve had.

  15. Widdershins says:

    That they are. 😀

  16. Debbie says:

    Beautiful … and so is your title!

  17. Rebecca says:

    I love their spring green color!

  18. Oh how pretty, it so livens up the winterscape!

  19. Bela Johnson says:

    i do miss the variety of mosses and lichens in New England. Viscerally sometimes! 💗

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, there are many forms here and this winter has been a good one for them with most days above freezing and plentiful moisture. They practically glow!

      • Bela Johnson says:

        As they would. We had orange and the most lovely shade of blue, also yellow on our lakeside land in Maine, growing on boulders as big as houses. I do miss how things were back then. 😊🪴🌳😉

  20. I love seeing tufts of moss and they do look starlike. Our dogwoods are covered in moss. Nice choice of descriptive word, Eliza!

  21. The green really pops from the gray bark and wintry background. I like how it is spaced out too!
