The season for lower plants

All the wet weather has to be good for something! Well lichens and bryophytes certainly don't seem to mind a drop of the wet stuff and as these diverse groups are very important components of our local flora I've starting taking more of an interest in the wonderful world of bryophytes. Species noted today included:
Cladonia coccifera agg. (a lichen)
 Dicranum scoparium (Broom Fork-moss)
 Hyocomium armoricum (Flagellate Feather-moss)
