Well, it's that time of year when the Moss in the garden starts to really take off. And although many gardeners go to great efforts to remove it from every place, I choose to allow it to pop up here and there adding additional interest in the yard. I do remove it from the lawn, the beds, and hard surfaces like walkways and driveways, but other than that, it's a welcome visitor to trees, shrubs, and boulders.
The above photos are lichens and moss growing on the Vine Maples ( Acer circinatum) in the garden.
