gathering moss


We finally planted "bird's nest ferns" in these great cast iron wire urns that we found last year at a nearby thrift shop.
At a local nearby nursery, I was able to find sheets of super moss and line the inside of the urn with the moss and plant the fern inside.

My Father has a favorite saying that a "Rolling stone gathers no moss" - well this gal has been rolling along and gathering moss.  Hope things are rolling along nicely for you today.

Super moss and what potting soil? Anything special needed? I have the perfect wire planter for this.

potting soil, yes, we bought a bag of good potting soil, put some rocks in the bottom and then planted the ferns inside.

I love your wire urns Patricia, lucky find. I just finished planting up our urns this morning.

I hope you're having as stunning of a day as we are up north.
