The woodland area leads to the copse. I knew there would be moss looking at its best here.
Moss has no roots. Moss loves places that are cool moist and dark.
Moss loves shady ground, rocks, trees and a moist environment.
Moss can only grow in a clean environment. Certain animals, such as reindeer, consume mosses because they contain chemicals which warms the blood.
Its a fascinating subject and one that I intend to study more. Anyway come over the bridge with me.
If we stop in the centre and look to our right there are rocks covered in moss.
Growing alongside them is this pretty little Asplenium Scolopendrium (the hart's tongue fern) Usually found in shady walls, the rocks are obviously a perfect situation for it.
I did not plant it. A may well buy some more though and plant amongst the rocks. A perfect situation for any creature looking for cool damp shade in the height of Summer.
Rainy or dry, enjoy your weekend.
