MOSS ON FIFTH

As readers of this blog already know, I love mosses.  I am astonished at how they grow and survive on rocks, creating patterns that rival the best of abstract art.

There seems to be an endless variety of mosses, some of which I found growing on a park wall along Fifth Avenue, just north of the Metropolitan Museum.  Many of the mosses formed little hillocks, reminding me of topographical maps or aerial views of a forest.

A touch of the primeval in the big city.
