Moss On The Roof

Intermediate Screw-moss (Syntrichia intermedia)

Intermediate Screw-moss (Syntrichia intermedia)

My garage roof has steadily succumbed to a covering of this wonderful moss over the years, which makes it look a lot more interesting than just covered in tiny white shards of gravel.  I decide to get the ladders out and have a close look-see, and amidst the open shoots which the recent rain has brought forth, are newer leaves ready to open up.

    1. Thank you, Ritva 🙂 Moss can be so beautiful and interesting in forms, colours and textures, and can be quite a challenge to identify at times.
