Before anything else…

Before anything else, the moss comes alive.

Luminescent!
Luminescent!

From an over-saturated mush at the side of the trail, it suddenly begins to illuminate.

Creeping along the trail edge and over anything stationary

The olive shades begin to turn the colour of lime peel.

Just when you begin to doubt that the snow will ever recede and that spring will come, the moss shows you the truth.

With the patches of snow quickly disappearing, it warms my heart to see the subtle message that moss sends out to those who are paying attention.

All of these pics were taken on my run in Seal Bay this afternoon – and somehow I managed to PR my loop time too! Either moss is inspiring to me or I’m afraid that it will start growing on me if I don’t get moving.
