Mosses You are Likely to Meet

 Mosses You are Likely to Meet

Accurately labeled, this display identifies many of the prevalent resident mosses of New England so that they can introduce themselves to you. Once you know the name of the kind you are curious about, you can find out more about it with the help of Google.

I wanted you to know the names of these particular ones, since they are kinds you are very likely to meet up with if you wander in the woods of New England. The side by side display is very helpful for comparisons.

This Moss collection resides in Newtown, Connecticut, at the Sticks and Stones Farm which I had the privilege of visiting this past weekend. The farm is a quite a magical place where our New England stone and native trees encourage the mosses to do their best, with the mindful attention of the overseeing ‘parents’ of the place, Tim Currier and Annie Stiefel, who are always looking after the best interests of the beautiful mosses, creatures and stones that reside there. They can tell you much about the lives and stories of the many denizens of their woodlands, and if you would like to acquire a tray of moss of a chosen kind, they can provide it.
They also have at least a million weathered stones from which to choose, should you need some, and unique stone sculptures and handmade buildings embedded in their landscape to inspire your future.
If you are truly fortunate, you may be able to go up the stone mountain in the faithful but ancient Rolls Royce. Here and there on the property there are a few guest cottages, each unique, charming and sometimes available to stay in. Lots of magic.
