Magical Moss -

On my drive home from the school yesterday, it was overcast, grey and drizzly. One stretch of the road is lined with bare, big-leaf maples.

This time of year, in this location, these trees are nearly completely covered in bright green moss. Moss and ferns growing from the trunks.

(These pictures can't begin to do them justice - taken with my tiny purse-camera, whilst driving, and through the windshield! :-)

The moss in the grey light nearly glowed green as the huge branches overhung the road.
I might have to go back with someone *else* driving, and my window down. :-)

I love the bright green of moss. I've always wanted a mossy colour velvet sofa. Maybe one day?

Wow-- that's a bit scary and beautiful at the same time!

How serendipitous - I've just read Andrea Joseph's post about the green moss hat(weaving of my dreams)
Have a look, it seems very 'you.'

I love mossy things!
