This moss garden – In the Wonderland – has bought me so much joy. From collecting moss in public park to choosing the right garden container, from making sand art in between the soil mix to cutting up my bracelet, necklaces and earrings, it has been an unexpectedly fun, dare-to-try experience. While I love my moss garden, it is definitely the process that I enjoyed the most.
I didn’t have much success with the moss that I dug in Tai Po. The moss stayed pale green and had never grown into a thick, emerald green, spongy carpet (middle) as I hoped for. But luckily, I found some beautiful moss in the garden of my bonsai instructor (left: the moss in the red bowl is taken from the bonsai garden). And yes, of course I asked for permission before picking the moss in his garden
To decorate my garden, instead of spending money on some beads and stones, I checked my closet and picked a few necklaces and accessories that I had put aside and never used for years. And these are what I’ve found.
A gigantic light-orange butterfly, some black giraffes, a crystal blue flower-shaped lake, a pale white laughing Buddha, “Wonderland” was the very first word came to my mind when I was trying to think up a name for my moss garden.
