I love moss.
I don’t know what it is that attracts me to it so much—but my love for moss is undeniable. Every time I pass a patch of it growing in some shady spot I smile. Most would try to eliminate it from their landscape—I welcome its growth. I want to bend down close to it and run my fingers over the soft terrain. I’m fascinated by the fact that a small patch of moss is actually made up of hundreds of little plants. I love how some of those little plants go wild and grow high above the surface of its neighbors.
So today I made a terrarium to bring a bit of that moss I adore inside. I grabbed a big mason jar from the garage and scooped a small pile of rocks into the bottom for drainage. I topped that with a bit of soil and then with G-tot’s tiny shovel—I couldn’t be bothered to find mine—I dug up a bit of moss from a shady spot in the backyard and carefully arranged it in the mason jar. Really simple, but in my opinion, quite lovely. What do you think?
