A Screw Against the Wall

I’m of course referring to the Wall-Screw Moss – tortula muralis – one of our commonest mosses. What else?

The mosses on the walls here around the village stand out at this time of year. Swollen with moisture from the damp air they have turned a verdant green; a green in sharp contrast to the greyness of the dull January Countryside. Each rounded mound of the Wall-Screw Moss sits proud of its station. It’s only by getting close that the miniature forest becomes apparent.
