THANKS to each of you who has bought my book, The Magical World of Moss Gardening. It all started here in my own moss garden. Soft cover versions are now in the 3rd printing. Hard cover books are already out of print (although I have some saved for my customers). I’m excited that I’ve finally received my first royalty check from Timber Press.

The magic of my garden engulfs my spirit, ant that internal smile instantaneously moves to my face. As I gaze at the dazzling mosaic of mosses in my garden, I feel immense joy and pride juxtaposed with calm. Throughout all the seasons, my mosses have a magnetic quality that engulfs me. Most often, I am catching a quick glimpse for an infusion of moss magic as I head into the world in my work as a moss landscape designer and moss farmer.
