Moss Underfoot





Afresh from a previous night's viewing of Jane Eyre, I have moors and moss on the brain this morning.

And there is a place that actually sells moss. Moss Acres. They are kindred spirits, as their woodland creations and the trinity of water/moss/shade draw me in immediately. Inviting me to sit. And spend an afternoon. Among the cool rocks, the shade and the fairies. I meant, frogs. Who said fairies? Not fairies. Frogs. (Nervous giggle). A-hem.

They sell fern moss, cushion moss, hair cap moss and rock cap moss. Some mosses are sold by the square foot, the cubic square foot or by the clump (of course!). They also offer starter moss kits and moss sampler kits.

Which version of Jane Eyre did you watch? I have watched every version, some multiple times. Each has its strengths and weaknesses and one of them is just simply awful.

I love these photos. What a gorgeous place.

What a lovely place! And to think I just dump out the moss I scrape from the lawn...

MMS - I think it is the *most* recent version - running on PBS. It is my favorite, so far . . .

Mr. McGregor's daughter - I'll take your moss! You could have a cottage industry right under your nose.

Those moss people should come scrape some off the side of my house, lol!

Now I want to grow moss.

Yes! Moss! I love it, what an instant feeling it evokes upon seeing it!
It goes with the stone walls I have imagined in my mind for my future garden.
