Why? Unsure. Despite being gawked at by my neighbours as i wandered the local footpaths happily digging up moss, it was enjoyable and the result on my kitchen window is a little bit sweet.
Some random facts about moss purely for your enjoyment:
1. Reindeers eat moss because it contains a chemical that keeps their blood warm.
2. Moss can grow in temperatures just above zero degrees.
3. Mosses and liverworts were the first green plants to devlop in the process of evolution.
4. Just 'cause its funny, say this fast ---> sphagnum. sphagnum. sphagnum.
