I never knew that this plant was called graveyard moss. I have it growing in my front yard and yes, it is invasive. It only grows in one direction in my yard and that is towards the house. It never grows towards the rest of the front yard, so I have been kind to it and let it go wither it will. If it ever heads in the other direction, I will have to put an end to it. It does make a lovely ground cover under my Bradford pear tree, though.

Sharon...Everytime I read your stories tears fill my eyes. Tears of joy and laughter and of sorrow. Sometimes I feel we must be related somehow. I am, as was my family from east TN (Rogersville) but relocated to IL at a young age. My southern roots run to the devils door but NO further...LOL.

Our heritage is almost identical and our interests also!! Your Aunt Bette is my Aunt Etta whom I loved to visit with, ask questions hear stories and explore with in her garden and on her farm. She called me her little Indian Princess til the day she passed. Your experiences remind me so much of mine and my Aunt Ettas' .
Thank you so much !
Please don't ever stop writting these heart touching and informative articles
