Marvelous moss: Mossin’ Annie worships the lush and lovely bryophytes

out fr By Melanie Threlkeld McConnell • Correspondent
A rolling stone gathers no moss, so says the proverb, but it would if Annie Martin had her way — and be the better for it.
Martin, also known as Mossin’ Annie, is leaving her mark on the world — literally — with moss, and she’s hoping others will too, after they see her signature moss garden at the Highlands Biological Station.
The Leila Barnes Cheatham Moss Garden at Highlands is a learning garden, the first of its kind in the country, Martin believes, where the various types of moss — and a few liverworts — chosen specifically for the garden’s dedicated space are all labeled so visitors can learn their names.
