    in the year? or so since i’ve been visiting this site, both the array of techniques at your disposal and your photography skills have grown exponentially.
    thanks so much for all your time and effort keeping up this site and sharing your photographs and plant knowledge!

    Thanks, Daniel. Don’t you just love the amazing varieties of the mosses and fungi and even apples and berries… gosh, the list goes on and on, doesn’t it?
    The internet is teaching people so many things about our wonderful world, and you are one of the best teachers. The things I have learned, amaze me, and I have encouraged other people in my group of internet friends to sign up in your website. Then we chat about the daily offering you give us, and that even adds to the enjoyment of learning.

    Although not even in the same league as Daniel as a botanist/taxonomist; I went through the same experience with the mosses in the woods behind my house. After several books, google images, etc, I finally gave up and decided to just enjoy their variety!

    If that rock were just a little rounder, with the look of the water it would appear even more like a tiny planet (like the microcosm it is?) in the swirl of an astral aurora!

    Andrea – next time I go, I’ll have to look for a round rock! Thank you all.

    I agree with Bev – lovely photograph.

    We may not know the moss, but I love your photograph of it. The way the water swirls and mists around the rock really makes the picture.

    I used to live in a Bay Laurel forest near the Pacific Ocean. I moved there in the fall, when there had been no rain for several months. The moss on the trees was barely a thin fur, grayish-green; it looked a little like this photo. Then the rains came. The fur turned bright green, then nearly florescent as it grew and grew into inches-long fern-like plants, covering nearly every surface!

    Another learning experience. I really look forward to each day. I share so much with other Master Gardener friends,
    Thank you,
