People that regularly read this blog know that I am always hungry for color. That is especially true this time of year (It’s officially winter; today is the Winter Solstice). When everything is gray, white, or brown, it is a treat to see something like the deep greens provided by moss. Here are a couple of moss shots I took on my trek up the slope on the other side of the road.
The photo above shows the thick clump of mosses that were thriving on the remnant of an old burnt Cedar tree. Cedar is very resistant to decay, and although the base of this tree has been dead for over 100 years, the wood is still firm, and provides a good home for this moss.
Below is a photo showing both moss and lichen that was growing on a old piece of wood laying on the ground.
