Here we go. My new project – growing moss.
Apartment Therapy has a clear instructions on how to grow moss.
You just need to harvest some moss, blend it in the blender with water and buttermilk (2 cups each) and paint it onto brick, floor, pots – then mist to keep wet. They say it will grow within 3 weeks. Will let you know how it goes for me!

While sweeping the entrance steps, I noticed that we had moss thriving along the edge. The bright green fuzz is so beautiful.
So I’ve harvested some and transplanted them onto other areas around the entrance ground and stairs. Hopefully they will settle in and survive.
Here is a general guideline to growing moss. Tomorrow I’m going to pick up some buttermilk!
hummm… maybe I should make the entire front of the home into a Japanese moss garden!

Once or twice a week, one of my plant in the front entrance would be all smushed down.The plant is a large pot with mint and some ivy.
I’ve been suspecting 3 things:
1. There is a cat sitting on top of my plant. (but is this really possible?)
2. Someone is putting their bag on top of the plant while opening the door (but who would do that?)
3. Heavy rain or wind flattened the plant. (only this one plant..)
And today my upstairs neighbor sent me this email!! “Hi. This is why the big plant is smushed. The kitten has been sleeping in it (:”
I knew it!! It’s cat mint plant!
I’ve seen this kitty around the hood. Super cute, tiny – with bright emerald eyes. So happy with the new visitor! Kitty – please keep sleeping over!
