A sweet story — SOAT saves the baby mosses!

My friend Lindsay sent me this photo, which her mother in Virginia sent to her the other day. Apparently, Lindsay's mom had recently hired a landscaper to come "tear out all that moss" in her backyard and replace it with lawn…but after reading "The Signature of All Things", she was unable to do it, having now fallen in love with the idea that moss beds are tiny, magnificent forests of their own.

So the gorgeous moss was saved, and the book had its portrait taken in the lush green natural carpet, as a tribute.

Hooray, Lindsay's mom!

Alma would be so pleased…
