Moss in House

The book Gathering Moss has inspired me to look closely at the local mosses. Yesterday, while walking by the stone wall and heading up the stairs to my house, I stopped to cut loose this little patch of bryophyte.

The photo below is about 3x life size, while the one above is something like 10x and kind of reminds me of a jungle scene...

To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations - such is a pleasure beyond compare.
