My last post showed the wonderful seaweed colours of the foreshore around Gairloch but this time I’ve put together the wonderful greens of the mosses I found. The high levels of ‘precipitation’ at times in the area of course is part of the reason for the richness of the colour but the sun shining that day allowed me to get down and close up to see the diversity of texture and colour.These mosses mark the boundary between wet and dry. As a child I used to collect a few samples of the sundew and other flowers from these wet areas. Sundew is touch reactive which as a child intrigued me. I think I learned so much about boundary plants in ditches like these and the rock pools where the seaweed is found.

No effort spared to get the best shot you will see…..

I’m even toning in!
