Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette

Here in the PNW moss grows pretty much everywhere. If you aren't resigned to it growing in the garden, you have an uphill battle on your hands. Personally I love moss. I do pay to have someone treat my roof, because I don't want it growing there. I don't mind it growing in the lawn, or in the garden beds, and I'd love to have lots more of it on all the rocks and stones and boulders in my garden. You may have heard the term "mossback" to refer to a PNWer who prefers drizzly, gray weather rather than sunny days.

I shouldn't have been surprised to find it growing on the cushions of my chaise. Lazy gardener/home-owner that I am, I leave them out all winter. They seem to be made of a fabric that dries out rather quickly once the sun comes out.

Still...

  1. Moss certainly will grow just about anywhere in our climate.

  2. Sweet and amusing picture. I love some types of moss a lot, they seem soft and gentle, other types I fight and pull out the best I can. I convince myself that I have the upper hand and I can win that battle.

  3. I love moss! Like you, I don't like it on my roof or on my walkways, but I cherish is just about anywhere else. Sweet photo - made me wish for it all to dry out, and temps to rise a little, so I can sit around outside long into the evenings.... Only a matter of weeks now!

  4. Ha! That wouldn't happen here, although, somewhat to my amazement, moss even grows here in small amounts.

  5. Tom just treated the lawn with MossOut, but only half of it. The shady half is more moss than grass now, and it's green and healthy and so we are keeping it.

  6. That's too funny, Alison. You're right. Moss grows everywhere in the good ole PNW. Great photo!

  7. You probably park your car in the garage? We don’t, and sometimes find moss growing on the weatherstripping at the base of the windows...

  8. I'm thinking of converting part of the back garden from grass to moss. It grows here to, but perhaps not as happily.

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
