Hey Akka B, I needed that moss-making recipe. Thanks. We have a back patio
made of cement squares (topped with small stones), the fill between squares
is sand that I aim to cover with moss instead of weeds that currently grow
there in an oh, so unattractive manner.
You're so happy to be home that you're making fake rocks. ;0 You must have
really needed a healthy dose of being creative to counteract the j.o.b. I
need one of those fake rocks for my well head near our driveway. The old one
was run over by a bush hog because it was so low to the ground, the new one
sticks up a good 18". We call it the periscope. Strangers (aka family) look
at us like we're nuts. We probably are.
Congratulations on being back at home.
