Moss is often found in Japanese gardens. It brings softness to the space. I have always loved japanese moss gardens. Whilst reading a gardening magazine a few years ago I was captivated by the above image. My garden is full of moss due to the high water table, so I decided to try and create something similar to the above. I did not realise how long it would take for the moss to cover a small area.
It is slowly creeping, and I do mean slowly. I added a small piece of moss two years ago and this is the result. The two barrels that lie below the oak bucket are partially covered......the light was wrong today so I could not get a true photograph, so will post another time.
I am pleased with the effect.......hmmmmm, now all I need is a frog !!
