Mainly about the wild flowers of Fife

Maspie Den

Today was really about re-checking some of the mosses and liverworts Mgt and I found a couple of weeks ago, but there were lots of other things which caught my eye.

This Stag’s-horn fungus was the brightest thing in the wood.

Mind you, my favourite liverwort is also very colourful.

Still to ID it properly, thinking Scapania.

There was a hollow Ash tree, still alive but surely on borrowed time.


A slime mould above one of the holes.

Up close, it was less like a cauliflower and more a beautiful heap of shiny white globes.

I loved this little colony of moss capsules, in the middle of a wide rocky plateau.

Under the trees, there was confetti from the conifers.

I think these are from an Abies, but not sure which one.
