One of the things I love the most about Oregon is the green. Everything is green here. This time of year, when there are no leaves on the trees, the green is still so apparent. The evergreen trees, the lichen covering limbs you normally do not notice because of the foliage, and the moss. There is moss everywhere in my neck of the woods, and I love it's delicate presence.
