Well I’m not going to praise moss on our front lawn where the shade of the house and recent rain has almost made me leave my armchair and do a little raking. “Almost”, there being gardening tasks one can always leave for another day. I have plenty of those. Today I’ll just photograph the tiny stone trough in which are sempervivums, saxifraga and, er, moss. All those “stone” troughs that are really not stone at all never look quite the real deal because they stay stubbornly clean due to the absence of lichen and moss. Here my pot benefits from the attractive growths that appear as if by magic, there being an abundance of spores in the air. I’m not raking out this lot.
