For the love of moss...

Down the trail

in the woods

you'll find

moss.

I ::love:: moss!

Moss with soldiers at attention.

Moss draped on logs like a lace table cloth.

Miniature mushrooms hiding in moss.

Moss rounds on moss.
Moss on moss ~ hee!

Moss reaching for the sun.

Through the secret pines..

and up the valley..

Waterfalls with moss.

So magical... I don't ever want to leave.

Ancient rock filled, moss covered valleys,

where if you glance over your shoulder,

you just might see the shadow of a dinosaur
disappearing behind one of the moss covered boulders!

I do believe this is where fairies live.
...and some trolls.
Magical.

I find that after a day of dealing with paperwork, phone calls, and task management, nothing soothes my mind more than images (and places) like these. Thank you.

Such lovely variety! With our climate, we have fewer kinds, but lovely all the same!

This is the best season for a moss walk, isn't it? Last year, we took a deep ramble in the woods, just before the first snowfall. The moss was the one remaining green thing, and we got down and enjoyed the grandeur of its intricacy.

I love this post, Leigh! THANK YOU! Happy Thanksgiving from your friends in Maine...xoxo

I too love moss, I love that it's like it's own little tiny world, I can also see wee gomes living inside of these lovely little scapes.
