Then there was Fir Clubmoss, Huperzia selago (upright branches of equal height) and (below) a companion for Alpine alchemilla with its completely divided leaves.
There was a Snow Lichen, Stereocaulon.
And some beautiful mosses. I think the blackish one is Andreaea rupestris, the ginger one is Didymodon insulanis, and the furry one is Racomitrium lanuginosum.
Sheila told us where to scramble up, and we found the Holly fern just where she said.
And Wood anemone, unexpected in this open ground but perhaps indicating that it used to be forest.
We all agreed we’ll have to go back later in the season for more. And to look for the Woodsia fern up this gully.
