What is Moss?
My friend, you come across this moss everywhere and naturally, you ignore it.
But you are aware of the carpet feeling when you walk over it.
Moss is an ancient plant.
This is a creator’s wonder
Believe it or not, we always overlook it.
They are tiny plants playing an important role in biodiverse habitats.
- They are non-flowering plants without roots but have stems and leaves.
- They stabilize soil surface and retain water helping new plants to grow.
- Remember moss is not harmful to your lawn or garden
“Moss grows where nothing else can grow. It grows on bricks. It grows on tree bark and roofing slate.
It grows in the Arctic Circle and in the balmiest tropics;
it also grows on the fur of sloths, on the backs of snails, on decaying human bones.
It is a resurrection engine.
A single clump of mosses can lie dormant and dry for forty years at a stretch, and then vault back again into life with a mere soaking of water” Elizabeth Gilbert
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
