Moss adds a sense of calm, age, and stillness to a garden

Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture in Nature

We are surrounded by textures man-made or natural.

Moss has such a warm, soft almost furry texture. The above moss I found in cracks between the paving stones in our garden. Moss adds a sense of calm, age, and stillness to a garden scene that is hard to achieve otherwise.

I love that clammy feel of moss on the ground against the contrast of the rougher moss found on branches in the garden. Here it grows close together in clumps or mats in the damp and shady areas protected by the canopy of trees.
