26th February


High Heath.


Sun and blue sky all day, but cool in the shade.

Another new moss of the Polytrichum group. The spore capsules are very tall - about 1 cm.

The top-down view of Polytrichum formosum is very geometric.


This side-view shows last year's antheridia (left) and sporophyte (right).

Another new Sphagnum showing the new, pink, growth.


New Bilberry shoots start off red. The little rosette to the bottom right is possibly Heath Milkwort.
