Roots always grow best in what is old, dead, or rotting (hopefully not your roof). Very good!!

Pamela: Its a cedar roof so it should have many more years. :-)

Pat: I don't think the moss is actually growing in the cedar. In this case it is a low-sloping roof in the shade. So moss tends to grow in the cracks between shakes.

Polona: Thank you!

I really like that you have "an old roof" as opposed to "the old roof". The vagueness just seems to pack more meaning, if that makes sense.

Masago said...

Aurora: I agree with you. Thanks.

I like the moss in the lawn!
Many do not, and they are even poisoning their lawn against the moss. Why! From the roof it is easy to wipe away?

I like this one a lot.

Tikkis: We get moss in the cracks of our cobble-stone sidewalk but so far I haven't see it in the lawn. And you are right about getting it off the roof...I scraped it off last year but it grows back fairly quickly. :-)

Borut: Thank you, my friend!
