On Barred Island. Off the coast of Maine, but not by much.
Pin cushion moss
Three kinds and a lichen.
Elf condo and spagnum, etc.
I thought those Berenstain Bears books were a little far-fetched. But apparently you really can live in a tree! Cool. Love the pin cushion moss. We characterize moss as random, haphazard, formless, but this species is anything but that. Such a beautiful symmetry in an otherwise haphazard genus. Just add water!
Love mosses. And ferns. Something peaceful about them. Thanks for the pix.
