The early spring seems to be the favorite time of year for the many mosses that can be found in the Robson Valley. Mosses prefer moist settings and low light, both of which a now in abundance. They are flowerless plants and after fertilization send up sporophytes, long thin stems topped with a small bundle of spores.
The photo on top shows moss growing on a very small piece of wood sticking out above the outflow water from my pond. Below is another variety of moss I found growing near the shore of the pond.
