This photo is truly worth a 1,000 words.

Can you believe this Moss covered structure?
Who lives here?

I would love to know
more about these two photos.  This does look like a staged photo.

I would like to believe it comes from a forest far far away.

In fact I can imagine that these steps are the only way
to get to this magical place. A place so
beautiful that it can't be conceived by the 
human eye, it lies only in our dreams.

 I have been busy in Pinterest this weekend building boards.

It is truly unbelievable what is available. Beauty like I have never imaged. 

That brings me to Moss, one of my favorite topics.
I love moss and over the years have had some success but more
failed attempts.  I have even purchased flats at a costly amount only to have
what grows naturally in nature die.  
No More!

I was visiting Gardens Inspired web site,
the very knowledgeable Debra Anchor
featured this wonderful article on the subject of Moss.  Drop by Debra's
site it is wonderful and filled with receipe's
for growing our own moss.

Have you ever tried to grow your own?

  1. Kathy, I love moss, so I really love this post! I cannot imagine a house cored in moss....very cool! I have tried to age pots by getting moss to grow on them using the buttermilk recipe, and it worked! The second recipe is new to me!

  2. Those photos are amazing. I especially love the path that leads into the forest of moss covered stones. We had places similar to that in the mountains of PA...not quite that heavily mossed but close.

    Blessings to you- I will pop by the blog you mentioned. xo Diana

  3. Oh my goodness...the photographs are absolutely magical! There are faeries lurking nearby surely!
    I do love, love, LOVE moss. We are fortunate to have several varieties in our tiny woodland. The sensation of cool moss on bare feet is rather like walking within a fairytale. Truth be told, I would much rather have a mossy lawn than a grassy one...shhhhh, that shall be our secret.
    Wishing you a splendid day Kathy!
    Most warmly,

  4. The more I read about moss the more wondrous it becomes...I am going out today to harvest some for my Faerie is raining & is a good time form what I read.......Thanks for posting the Gardens Inspired link...It lead me to the Upscaled garden link...which is great...Love the pic of the steps into the forest...:)

    Have a great day....Linda

  5. Fantastic photos of moss! Isn't Pinterest the best? I didn't see your pin button in your sidebar but if you want to follow me, I'll follow you back.

  6. I loved this post. This is why I love blogging,so many different interests. These pictures are gorgeous, I honestly had no idea growing moss was even possible! I am hopping over to the blog you suggested!


  7. Those moss coverings seem almost unreal. Beautiful shots.

  8. Oh these moss covered photos are glorious. The hands are splendid. The house is so interesting. I have no idea if they are staged, regardless they are beautiful. Thanks for becomming a follower, following back.

  9. What fascinating photos! With all the rain we've been having growing moss would be easy here right now. I also love Pinterest! I'd love to see your boards. You can follow me here:

  10. I am amazed at the beauty of those moss art pieces. They really look like something from another world. I agree that mosses are beautiful, but here they just grow freely during the rainy season. Maybe that is why it is not thought of as an art piece in the gardens.

  11. Wow - what gorgeous, luscious photos! The moss is so beautiful, rich and green. Linda

  12. I am also amazed by the beauty of the moss pieces. I really like the hands they are so peaceful and have a calming affect. The pictures are really gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration over at Sunday's Best!

  13. I love moss...the photos are gorgeous.

    Thanks for stopping by my place - glad to have met you.



  14. Hi Kathy, I think the hands may be from The Lost Gargens of Heligan in Cornwall UK. I think you would love to take a look, all the best, Bea :)p.s did you watch The Camomile Lawn?

  15. Wow, just amazed - love the moss covered helping hands - quite incredible - I cannot imagine living in a moss covered structure! Beautiful - I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

  18. Beautiful! I love moss! Thank you for sharing Debra Anchor's link with us!
    Hope you have a lovely day, Kathy!

  19. I love moss, and it's a good thing I do because if anything is left outside it is quickly moss covered. In the woods near our house there is a truck and a car completely moss-enveloped. Eerie!

  20. This article is in fact a pleasant one it helps new net visitors, who are wishing for blogging.
