THE GREEN MAJESTY OF LIVING WALLS

One summer when I was a kid, our Civil War-era house on the Mississippi River got flooded.  Nothing of much value was destroyed, but a few months later, an entire wall in our dank basement became overgrown with moss and mold.  My mother’s shame was immediate, and the whole family spent several days scrubbing and   the wall until it was clean again.  Little did she know, if she’d have just left it alone for a couple decades, it would’ve been right on trend.
