A Rolling Stone gathers no moss but a flat boulder certainly does. I dug this one out of the mountain side ten years ago. It was a chunk of ledge along the strawberry level. It’s a fair sized chunk of Vermont, about six feet long by 18″ thick. I carefully shifted it to the edge of the new terrace and left it there as a sitting rock. Now the softer bands of stone have grown loads of moss and other plants while the quartz bands are still free of life. I don’t tend to actually sit on it because it is too interesting to look at the growing life forms. Besides, it’s sitting on the edge of a cliff I would rather not slide down…
