Sunrise on the Maumee

     Mosses, liverworts and hornworts are the simplest plants, having no vascular structures and reproducing with spores.  Here the flat liverworts are in amongst moss on a log in a wet area of Oak Openings (where the skunk cabbage was coming up).  
     These plants do not seem to pay attention to the seasons and provide bright color even in the winter.

  1. And lovelier yet, if you build it they will come.
    The fellow who placed our patio stones in the shady back yard told us that mosses and lichens would move in and anchor the spaces between the pavers.

    The effect is free and lovely :)
