Inspired: Moss

One of my favorite things in Point Reyes was wind-swept pines absolutely covered with lichen and ferns. The weather is usually so harsh out there that the trees grow sideways and the damp air covers everything with moss. My plant-biologist sister would have got absolutely nuts with all the succulents, wild irises, ferns and reedy grasses we spotted.

love, love, love! Point Reyes is probably one of my most favorite places on this earth. Us SF'ers are pretty lucky to live so close.

oh man, I love it up there. Trent and I went camping for the first time up there, and since he was terrified of my uber-plant love, I knew he was a keeper :)

Sounds like you guys had a great weekend, glad it all worked out so well!
