Mister Moss’s Moment

Sanford Walk, London, SE14

Every sunny day, at about 3:30 in the afternoon, this otherwise inconspicuous and rather dull-coloured piece of moss, experiences a moment of glory.

Sunshine, dappled by the overhead trees, has reached it at last. Each individual mossy strand stands out, glowing reddy-brown, shining brightly in the spotlight.

45 minutes later, and it is almost invisible again, nestled in the shallow hollow of a rock, awaiting tomorrow’s sun.
