give me the man...

Give me the man who will surrender the whole world for a moss or a caterpillar, and impracticable visions for a simple human delight.                                                               -Bruce Frederick Cummings

On the other hand. . . moss is killing my trees! They used to make mattresses stuffed with moss in Casselberry, Florida. Had a factory. Shipped them across the country. I can't imagine it.

We don't have moss here to kill our trees...don't think I'd like to sleep on a mattress made of it though as a child in Florida my dolls and stuffed animals often had moss mattresses. Okay, Okay, maybe I don't want the man who would give up the world for moss...but caterpillars...now there's a man! :)

Is it moss or lichen? Not sure from looking at it, anyway, it makes for a great subject and you made something beautiful out of it :)

We've always called it moss...not even sure what lichen is! Thank you!
