Moss on Stone

Daily Image - 12 April 2011 - Moss on Stone

Early Spring is the time of the mosses and ferns. In this part of the world Winters are mild enough that mosses only slow down their growth, but with the longer days and milder temperatures of Spring, the mosses come back with a vengeance. Here, in the deep woods of my woodlot, where light is always muted and at a premium, the lush green of the mosses is already in evidence on the stones, at the base of the trees and on the forest floor itself. Can the tender shoots of this year’s ferns be far behind?
