Blooming Moss

Mother Nature's own version of the red carpet seems to be rolling out as assorted mosses send up their flowering shoots.

While exploring the woods earlier this week I came across large clumps of bricks still cemented together. I think someone had dumped an old fire pit back there. The moss was absolutely clinging to it!

I don't know enough about mosses to identify but clearly there are multiple species growing here. 

This makes me wonder how easy they are to grow from seed. Though I hear an easier method is to ground up whole clumps with a can of old beer and a table spoon of milk (sugar?), or some recipe to that extent.

  1. I never thought of that fine red stuff on moss as blossoms. But now I will. Nice pictures.
