I was putting my trash dumpster back under my deck this afternoon and saw what I thought was a small plastic ring on the ground, surrounding some moss that was strangely lush and green.
But it wasn’t a ring, it was a lid. Maybe off of a gallon jug of some drink or a household liquid.
It was lush and green because it held a small amount of water, while the nearby mosses were drained by the soil.
The moss was the same as those growing on the shady ground near to it.
Meanwhile, I checked out the only tree in my yard, a crab apple. I found several honeybees and a single red admiral visiting.
