LONGLEAF STORIES

full circle in the hundred acre wood

Goldilocks moss 3-24-04 005-1

This is the “orange grass” I wrote about seeing on our walk yesterday afternoon. The photo doesn’t do it justice on this cool bright morning. I have tried to find pictures to figure out what it is. Looking closer, it is sprouting up from a pretty green moss. In the National Audubon Society’s Field Guide to Florida (page 85), I found a plant called Haircap Moss “Goldilocks” Polytrichum commune, Moss Class. I think that’s what we have here.

Speak. Leave a memory.
