Deep In the Green of the Moss Garden February 5, 2013

Yesterday, I went and took a long therapeutic walk through the Bellevue Botanical Garden. The flowers were just barely starting to peek up, mostly the earliest Hellebores. But, today the truest star was the moss in all its myriad of textures and colors. Being a native here, you would think that it would be boring and tiresome to see this all the time, but I never get bored with it. Just look at the sculpture that Mother Nature left us to admire.

I tried to give you some good detail to admire, but trust me, whatever device you are looking at this on could not possibly do justice to the depth of color and texture here.

I loved how this rick sat all by itself, ENGULFED.

I decided there was no other word than the made up one that I thought of for this that fit it nearly as well- “Entwangled”.

Just look at the diversity in this one small space positively TEEMING with life!!

    I walk through the Bellevue Botanical Garden on those days when I am looking for a little sanity. It is a wonderful resource for those of us here on the Eastside. I love your photos, thank you for sharing.

    “Entwangled.” One of the perks of being a writer is getting to make up new words. I love this one!

    Entwangedly yours,
