Rock(ery) Climbing

“A rolling stone gathers no moss”

English Proverb

I need to clamber about in my rockery in order to work there. Tricky at times since it is shady all through the winter, so still muddy and slippery, and finding a foothold is an art (which I am working hard at mastering!). Needless to say, I often end up with my nose in a lavender bush… or worse! On Saturday I came face to face with a mossy rock, and after the pain subsided I noticed how much life there was in this inanimate object. Life in a rock?
