Raking mosses

How to keep mosses always healthy requires time and patience.
If you are not in a mood for spending up your time in the garden, it will turn to be such an irritating moment of a day. But once I get involved in it, I quite enjoy this chore of cleaning up the garden.

Today it was warm and less windy in the morning, I decided to spend a couple of hours before lunch to clean mosses.
Mosses grow inches and you can't neglet them grow. If they grow tall, it is natural they stand tittled and finally they pile one another by their own weight. Sometimes this brings excessive moisture inside mosses and let them ret. To prevent them from dying, I rake them to have them sit straight to get enough air as well as clean the surface.

It's really fun to see quite an amount of weeds are raked at the same time.
After raking, it's so pleasant to see and feel a moist carpet of green.

My 200th post!

It took way long for me to hit the 200th post today.
When I started my blog in English, who would have expected to meet a group of nice and sweet women from different countries. In fact I started my blog about 6 years ago but I haven't gotten many comments for years. Eventually I wasn't a good writer for years. I almost gave up writing.
I still remember of my excitement when I found the comments from Dionne from US and Little Tiara from Indonesia. They came in at around the same time and then I've met Anya from Holland and Jeany from Germany. This brought about a change in my blog. I've got some other friends. Lenorenevermore, Pamela, from US and Ellen from Malaysia, you always give me an enthusiasm to keep uploading my posts, as well. Then new meetings still lead me to another new encounters one after another!
Of course I would like to say "Thank you" to all those who come and read my posts often.
Without each one's constant visit to my blog, I would have never made the 200th post today!
