Walking in the woods I would come across some moss now and then at the trails edge. Some moss was sort of sketchy or sporadic with twig debris all through it. This was one of the better ones I found.
Moss will establish itself in the winter when most plants are dormant.
Moss grows and thrives in poor and compacted soils. It thrives in the shady moist areas.
Though home owners would not usually like moss in their yards or on their house or buildings, moss is a beautiful plant. I enjoy the softness that it provides color in the woods that is void of color and drab. I always enjoy finding it in the woods.
Just as moss in its right place is enjoyable, we can find peace in life as we live with a purpose for God.
