My short words

In the dark forest, the fresh sporophytes were shining by the sunlight.
It looked a tiny mossy forest in the forest ;)

I felt some kind of connections between the forest and the moss.



Memo

  • I found the moss in the forest in MacKinnon Ravine Park (Edmonton, AB, Canada).
  • Mosses are one group of bryophytes[1,3].
  • It had fresh sporophytes that can reproduce. [2,5,7].
