Moss, the evergreen

“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

How to survive November 2021 Day 2

Our favorite month, November! This year we’ll get rid of gray by painting the month in green. Lepis from Parallel lines has hosted this challenge for years, I have been part of it for several years too, feel free to join us 🙂

Open your world to a green November and enjoy your creativity. How you do it is free as long as it’s green!

Tiny forest finds

Weekend came and went so quickly, Saturday as cool so I spent most of the day in side by the fireplace with a magazine or watching tv. I was so brave that I left my laptop home 🙂

Saturday was warmer, the most significant change was that we had less wind. I walked on our plot, looking for something to take photos of as the green nature is still keeping us waiting. But it can be found in the details. Here are my small finds.

Moss in February light

I love the green moss and the back light of February coming from behind it.

Tiny world

it is so early spring that the only green to be seen is the moss and the wonders of the tiny world next to it. I spent some time past weekend with my camera pointed to the tiny wonders found on the ground -if you look close enough.

November morning

November morning in Vols, Kirkkonummi. I found these cut tree trunks that were hollow inside covered with moss. set against the browns leaves of November, they looked lovely with the beautiful green moss on them

Walking around and looking down…taking photos on the ground. Do I not have anything better to do?
