"Fieldnotes," September 1st & 2nd, 2013: "Moss," by Erica Wetter.  http://www.montananaturalist.org/

"My eyes alighted on a spectacular patch of jade green smack-dab in the middle of the sandy-colored rocks: moss. I leaned close and the fresh aroma of moist springtime soil rose up to meet me. It was like diving into a lake on a steamy summer night. The moss was like a miniature paradise, with waterfalls spilling down into tiny green valleys."
