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.
Now you understand why Seattleites love their coffee SO much, if we stand still long enough in one place here this is what happens! 🙂

Great pictures. Heard the Moss and Stone Gardens owners speak at a garden club meeting last year, now I want moss everywhere.
Thanks! Me too, I am quickly becoming obsessed with both moss and ferns.

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!
