moss and flowers on old walls

Moss and plants grow on everything around here. This moss is on a shady side of Trim Castle, just a few minutes drive from my house.

Lovely purple wildflowers by a ruin on the castle grounds. I think this is rosebay willowherb.

These flowers are Herb Robert, a type of wild geranium, and sometimes grows in crevices wherever they can find a foothold. This is a wall behind my kid's house in Dublin.

More Trim moss.

Old ruins are so beautiful - especially when accompanied by moss and wild flowers. Nice shots!

Moss is my favorite. I would love to have a moss garden, and I tried starting one in the back of my yard, under the trees where nothing else grew.

I found some moss in a shady spot in my yard, transplanted it to the damp, shady earth beneath the trees, and waited. The moss died, but the bit of grass that got transplanted with the moss took off. I now have to mow under the trees.

I love old stone walls, love moss and wildflowers and your combination is evocative of sundrenched mossy rocka to lay one's head upon.

Old stone walls are so lovely, aren't they? Especially when there are growing plants and mosses in the cracks. There is a lot of moss in my garden too which is unusual in summer but so far it has been quite a wet summer alas.

I love mosses! Unfortunately, around here they don't grow (urban dry garden)... but I do get to see them sometimes in the woods back home. Not as fun as seeing them on rocks and structures, somehow.
