I Love Moss

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 221 People

    Magical

    There's a brook that ripples through the woods behind my house.Huge sheets of shale create waterfalls and pools.On the bank under a canopy of maples and oaks lies a large bed of moss,so soft and lush, like velvet. This serene place is one of my magic spots.

    Oh, Glorious Moss (bad Poetry By Moi)

    Oh, Glorious Moss! So humble, So serene, Clad in your kaleidoscope of greens. Your microcosmic forest is life To all who choose to dwell. Drawn to shade, At home in quiet, Blossoming in mist, My kindred spirit.

    My Favorite Waterfall

    les chutes Manitou in Quebec. opposite the falls is a steep rock face, too steep and rocky for any trees to grow on it. but because of the spray off the falls, it's a solid wall of moss for one or two hundred feet up. I found it breathtaking, and it gave me a whole new...

    Jophene! It's A Group Already!

    Well how about that?  Other people love moss too.  *smiles* I was just telling my good friend Jophene that moss is the most magical of all plants.  What can look like nothing other than a dry, dusty, lifeless crust, on the surface of the soil, can be transformed...

    Trees

    I went to the mountains today with my dad for a long hike. After a never ending uphill climb we came across this area of grass meadow and forest trees. It was awsome! But what made it even better was the unique moss that coated the trees. It was a rich neon green color and...

    Lush Green Carpet Underfoot

    There was a patch of moss that covered the ground in the woods behind my father's house when I was a child. I absolutely loved to lie on it, walk on it, feel it with the palms of my hands. Moss is one of the simple beauties in the world.

    Who Doesn't.

    I used to love sleeping on moss in a forest I used to visit as a child. Later when I lived in the mountains we used to cut moss, collect rocks and other plants and build miniuture gardens with them.

    How Moss Flourishes

    Firstly, I am astonished there is a site specially dedicated to moss. Instead of poring the "I Love Nature" site it is an honour to have one solely for that vibrant green. Wherever there is slight damp this plant will grow in abundance. On mossy banks and walls it...

    Not This Moss!!!!!

     I am slightly concerned there is an ad alongside this site featuring, KATE MOSS!!!!!!   I believe Google is becoming slightly confused. Any comments?? Those ads slightly misconstrued, their humour brings a smile to my face.

    Moss And Ferns Under A Canopy Of Evergreens

    I really miss the forests of western Washington State. I spent countless hours wandering thru the forests taking in the sights, sounds, & smells. I loved the lush green moss and ferns beneath the canopy of evergreens and wish I could somehow recreate that...

    Special Moments And A Thanks :)

    I really don't remember paying too much attention to moss as a child.However, ground strawberries on long dry grass stems, the irises in the creek, the lush ferns, and the mushroom and berry picking excursions in the forests; these I remember with great nostalgia and joy!What i...

    I Want Some

    I live in the Pacific Northwest.

    Born and raised. Moss, wet weather with slugs on the front steps is a usual. I like drawing mossy rocks and trees with ink and watercolor.

    Moss Is Just So Great.

    When I used to work in computer support, a coworker and I used to talk about moss a lot. How great it would be to have your entire yard be just moss. It is such a nice green and you would never have to mow it. Feels great to walk on moss in bare feet.

    Shades Of Green

    I like to call it "land coral". This is the type of moss that grows in Lake Tahoe. It's the brightest shade of green and can be seen on the north side of most trees in Tahoe. I am curious.... does moss always grow on the north side of trees or is it different in...

    Moss <3

    The vibrant green of moss is lovely. I love the way it feels under my fingers. How soft and squishy it is under my feet. There's nothing like the texture of moss.
