Mossy Roof, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia



With the recent unseasonably cool and unusually rainy weather for the past few weeks, moss has once again begun to assert its place on the wooden shingles of the roof of this and many buildings in Colonial Williamsburg. Maybe this is the 18th century's version of a "green" building.

It's really a wonderful shot. The moss on the roof makes it romantic. Well done.

Lovely dormer window...makes me wonder what's behind it. Clever "green" comment!

Does the moss damage the roof? It isn't leaking I hope!

Ever the "practical pig," I fear the moss accelerating deterioration of the shakes. Jim

It looks sp pretty, but that's probably not a good enough reason to leave it there I'm guessing!
