In today’s winter light the mossy fringe on Kings Cross’s buttresses stood out particularly vividly. It’s lovely to see some natural growth in what is a harsh canyon, despite the trees on the East side. And in the warm weather it seems to be growing vigorously. It’s always good for an old lady to have moss on her buttresses – anyone know what variety it is? And is it flowering in a mossy-way? Let’s hope Network Rail don’t kill it off – the buttresses are an odd part of the station – put in to shore things up in the arches fairly early in the station’s life.
