Moss growing thin on non-rolling stone
Comments(13) # Moss growing thin on non-rolling stone london e10

So, as Mary de B correctly suggested, Wednesday's photo was of something mossy. Why not visit her Knitting Blog and congratulate her? Specifically, I think it's one of the Syntrichia or Screw Mosses, very probably as Chris suggested, Syntrichia intermedia. Several suggestions also of it being a Spurge/Euphorbia which makes sense until one realises that the leaves are only a few millimetres long. Also, having found out what water lettuce looks like I can also see why Meg from MJ's Year 9 thought it might be that. Thanks to all for participating in the guessathon. Notice also above that there are at least three other species of moss on the same stone. Incidentally while I was taking the first shot someone stopped and asked me if I'd ever been to Denmark or Sweden as the mosses there are very good indeed, apparently. So now you know. Tomorrow we'll have the first chicks of the year, can you guess which species? Canon EOS 5D
