Wildcrafting: Moss Garden
When I have time in late fall or early winter, I like to make a moss garden or two to provide a spot of green in the cold, dark months. My critters went with me, apparently thinking I needed escort service.
Moss is so pretty with its endless shades of green and even its shapes. I know there are people out there who can tell me that names of the various kinds; I've never attempted to learn them but I do enjoy looking at moss and lichen. I found a selection of odds and ends to add to the gardens, too--a moss-covered stick,
different colors of moss
I pulled up the geraniums and lobelia even though the plants were still thriving, even this late in December. I've never had flowers so late in the year! I put the geraniums in the cellar, to replant in the spring. Then I arranged the moss and other items in the flower pots.
