Project 365 - 84

A Botanical division.

I can't feeling that my titles always make the subject sound more interesting than it is.

Taken at break time to day, i spotted this lurking behind an old oil tank.

Yes is simply a patch of Moss.

Look out sciencey bit!

Mosses are a botanical division (phylum) of small, soft plants that are typically 110 cm (0.43.9 in) tall, though some species are much larger, like Dawsonia, the tallest moss in the world which can grow to 50 cm (20 in) in height. They commonly grow close together in clumps or mats in damp or shady locations. They do not have flowers or seeds, and their simple leaves cover the thin wiry stems. At certain times mosses produce spore capsules which may appear as beak-like capsules borne aloft on thin stalks.
