But for one man's poison is another man's pleasure. I found the below article on May 1, the day we are to celebrate spring with flowers. Well in Seattle a boquet of moss might be more appropriate.

The article attached discusses his efforts in pursuit of this moss paradise. And I have put the photos below along with some simple ideas of moss design and of course larger landscapes in which to moss about are below.
