An unreliable memoir

Rough-stalked Feather-moss

Rough-stalked Feather-moss

We prize red because it is the colour of ripe fruits, promising sweetness. I’ve never tasted Rough-stalked Feather-moss, the name alone puts you off. I don’t think it’s sweet, but the red sporangia still signify ripeness.

I don’t think I’d make it as a reindeer.

Rough-stalked Feather-moss, Brachythecium rutabulum.
