The Mosses are Blooming

Well, they are not blooming in the strict botanical sense.   But they are becoming quite beautiful.

I posted some photos of a moss from our yard a couple of weeks ago.  The little hazelnut shell I was using as a marker seems to have been washed away, but this is from a similar angle.


From a different angle you can see a number of capsules that are more advanced.


And I found a moss of a different species, on the horizontal branch of a tree.  These capsules are mostly found in the spaces of the bark.


Small but spectacular.
