Five-sided green fuzzy cube, how I love thee! I love your sides. I love the grass and clover at your feet. I love the one small twig balanced on your edge.

Some moss grows like small dots as you see above. When the dots (acrocarps) are close together, they make a luscious carpet. Other moss grows flatter (pleurocarps) and extend like rivulets of water or tiny clingy vines.

I’ve been pondering whether or not to “clean up moss”. After seeing others’ moss photos I’m going to bring a paint brush and tweezers to remove pine needles and grasses fromĀ future shots. Also, time for a macro lens!

Ever heard of a parking bollard? Neither had I. It’s a wood or cement block that marks the boundary of a parking space.
